This is a continuation of Q_21356480 from a few years ago. I can create a transparent custom stamp using a blank pdf with text added using the Touchup Text tool. This works fine on my computer but unfortunately if the receiver of the PDF doesn't have the required custom font (a font I made with special dingbat characters), it shows up with a 'substiture' font that basically shows a standard alpha-numberic character like an upper case "D" instead of the custom dingbat. Following instructions, I've tried to make a transparent png or gif using Corel Painter 11 and import it into a pdf but the transparent option for GIFs is grayed out and so it doesn't stay transparent in the PDF.
