PDF Signature Control Limitations
- The XRPdfSignature control is not exported to non-PDF formats. A placeholder is added to exported documents instead.
- The Web Document Viewer does not allow you to sign an exported document. The XRPdfSignature control’s Display Document Signature property is not in effect. You can add a signature to an exported file in a PDF editor.
