Infopath Form - Multiple signatures area - not displaying on form but shows on print view

I've created this form that has multiple signatures. This works great. I also have a printable view of the same form. A week ago, everything worked great. I added a few new fields, and such, and now when the first signature is signed, it is shown on both the default and print view, however the 2nd and 3rd signatues after signing only show on the print view. I've gone so far as to copy the print view areas over to the default view, saved the file, and its still not showing. This is Infopath 2007, non share point, windows xp

You may be experiencing some corruption?

Do you have a save of the template before you made the changes?  I have gotten in the habit of taking daily backups to avoid these types of issues.

I would check any formatting on the repeating section, i would also add another field besides signature to see if it is visible when adding a second.

I would create a new view and copy your main view elements over to that and see if it has the problem too.

I would just keep experimenting or go back to a previous and make the changes very carefully and sequentially and keep testing through out to see which one breaks the camel's back.

I created a new view and copied everything but the signature areas. THen saved it. I then dropped the signutature areas in one at a time, and saved in between each one. It worked.

Clayfox, do you have any suggestions on how to save templates or best practices when working with infopath forms / non share point?

Thanks again

I do a "save as" whenever I do a major change and just put the date on the back.

Let me see if i can explain what i do. I create a form, save it, publish the form to a network drive, then also publish to a list of users. The form is used in outlook and has been set up per MS's instructions and works great.

So I should do this, when i have changes, open the original form in design mode, do a save as for a back up, close the backup, open the original back up, make changes and test. If it failes, then I have the back up to rename to the original and start where i left off.

Any suggestions or recommendations is appreciated. Your very helpful and I thank you.
