eSign editor

The eSign editor differs from the document editor. The latter has native editing functionalities similar to Google docs or MS Word.

The eSign editor is for completed documents that are ready for approvals and eSignatures and does not allow textual or structural editing of the documents. For all intents and purposes, a document in the eSign editor is treated as a PDF document.

The editor has two main areas of action: the toolbar at the top and the control panel on the right.


eSign editor: Toolbar

The toolbar is simple with straightforward action buttons.
