Here is a video telling our users how to allow Data Entry in PDF Stamps. A new feature in PDF Studio 2022.
- Today I will show you how to create a PDF stamp that will prompt users to enter data. So, first what we want to do is go to the
File tab > and I’m going to create a page by going > to Create > and New Document > I’m going to press OK. So, first what you want to do is create
your own Custom Default Stamp. I already created one previously but if this is your first time what you want to do is go to the Comment tab > select Create > and create Custom Stamp. Like I said I already created my Custom Stamp.
- So now I’m just going to go to it, this one and I’m just going to place it on my page and next what you want to do is add a Dynamic Stamp. So I want to add a date
here, that’s going to automatically update whenever I place the stamp on a page to the correct date. So, in order to do that you’re going to go to Create >then create Text Stamp >
and the category you’re going to select is Dynamic > and I’m just going to name it “Date” > and then you’re going to select Insert date > and choose the format you want, his format’s fine with me, so I’m just going to leave it selected > and press OK. You can adjust the way it looks as well so I’m going to actually just change it to black here and I’m going to take off
the border and press OK. So, now you’ll see it pop up on your page. You can select it anywhere on your document, I’m going to select it there. It’s a little bit big so I’m going to
minimize it a little bit and there we go.
- Now that’s good I’m going to go to File, I’m just going to close out of this. I’m actually going to go to open now and I’m going to open another document. I’m going to open this mock invoice and I’m going to show the example of how to use this stamp. So, I’m going to go to Comment then I’m going to go to create Stamp and I’m going to go to create PDF Stamp so from here all I need to do is go into my browse area, I’m going to go to that folder I had with the stamps in it, PDF Stamps. There you go, select it and I’m going to select that page stamp that I saved and press Open. And there you go, you can see it there and I’m going to press OK. And now it’s going to prompt me to enter a name, this is just to name this stamp so I’m just going to name it “Paid” again. Press OK and I’m going to paste it anywhere on my page, and so now it’s asking me to please enter a name and so that’s the prompt for the user to enter their data so I’m going to place the name of whoever paid. For this invoice we’re just going to call that person “John Doe” and press OK. Alright and this seems a little bit too big so you can always alter the stamp to fit your page in the desired area you want to place it in, place it here.
