This guide is for the eSignature product, Papersign. For Paperform, see Theme Overview.
Papersign makes it easy to create and edit documents that perfectly match your company's brand. In this guide, you will learn how to:
When creating a document or page from scratch in Papersign, you can highlight any text to bring up the formatting bar.
This lets you apply styles to the text, including:
If you select the numbered list icon, you'll see a second sub-menu which you can use to select the character type. This can be used to switch to letters or Roman numerals.
The fonts for headings and body text can be set in the Theme menu.
To change the typography settings for your form, select "Theme" from the top-right corner of the editor.
The first dropdown lets you select which type of text to edit.
All headings and the header/footer text inherit most of their styles from the body text by default. When they are using an inherited value, the settings will appear in grey.
You can select a new style to override the inherited value.
If you change it back to match the body text again, this will re-link the values, turning it back to grey. Further changes to the body text will now affect the inherited value again.
Select any field on the document to view its settings. From here, you can set a unique font size that only applies to the selected field.
You can also change the alignment and padding in the settings for a text block (uploaded PDFs only).
On original pages, click the + icon to the left of the selected line, then scroll down to select the "image" option in the "content" section. You can also type
/image directly on to the page as a shortcut.
On uploaded PDFs, simply click on the document and select or type "image" in the pop-up menu.
From the following menu, you can either upload an image from your computer or select an image from Unsplash.
On uploaded PDFs, images exist "on top" of the document. Click and drag the image to reposition it.
Images on editable pages appear inline with text. Click on an image to bring up a small formatting bar, which you can use to change the alignment.
On either page style, hovering over the image will display a blue dot in the lower-right corner and an orange image icon in the top-right. Click and drag the blue dot to resize the image.
Clicking the orange icon will bring up our built-in image editor, as well as the option to replace it with a different image.
The image editor can be used to crop the image, add a filter, adjust color levels, and add annotations. When you're happy with how it looks, click the "Done" button. Alternatively, you can click "Close" to cancel your changes and return to the document editor.
The "Resize" feature inside of the image editor actually changes the pixel size of the base image, rather than changing its size as it appears on your document. Most users will want to avoid this option, and resize by clicking and dragging the image corner from the main document editor instead.
