Hi Valerie Peattie,

You can use the Signature form field to add a signature placeholder in your document. This will create a digital signature field. If you want to create one for use with EchoSign, you can do this by following this tutorial:

Can I send a PDF document and have the recipient sign on a specific place on the document.  When I tried this a signature line appeared at the bottom of the page but I could not move it to another place on the page.
