"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I'm not entirely sure what you mean -
If the signature is not digital then you just need a blank space for someone to write it on paper? - the usual approach is to show where the signature appears by putting underline characters:
Sign here:____________________________

If you want it to stand out more then you can insert a text box of the size you want and format it to have borders so you will get a 'box' for people to sign in.

However neither of these would constitute a 'control' for a signature although you could write into the textbox onscreen but this would be a digitised input

sorry if I'm missing the point

It would have to be a picture, so use a Picture Content Control

Hey

I would like to be able to "sign" the document using a pen (or finger) - on a touchscreen

the ink picture control is a digitisation of the signature - hence my question in the first comment
