I am creating a document in Word and need to add a signature box to show work completed. I am using a tablet and have not figured out how to accomplish this.

I have created a Word Doc that is a protected document. All areas are non-changable. I have a series of tables that have check boxes next to them. I also have Name, address, and personal information at the top.  I used developers tools to create all the editable regions so far and it is working pretty good. Now I just need to get the signature box at the bottom and make it work with a tablet.

I am stuck!  Any help??

I searched and found this reference, but do not have a tablet to experiment:

This almost works! it is the right idea, but the box that is created is huge! I can adjust the size of it, but it automatically puts in a line with an X as well. It also adds a line unter that for a description of the sig. If you look at the picture on that site they show as an example, the box created is EXACTLY like that!

The signiture I need is for a re-created state form that cannot be altered. It can be digital, but it has to look exact! If I can get the line below the signature box to disappear, and move the line down, it would work.  The problem is, that there is no way to alter this that I can find.

Does anyone know if this can be altered?

If not, does anyone have any other ideas?  Can I add a signable line to Adobe?
