    Could not agree more. Remote signing is very convenient. I use it all the time.

    ... And half of the times you're not even sure if the pdf you're sending will retain your sign when it's opened by someone else.
    It's frustrating. So much so I took the habit to send it to my computer to check everything is ok before sending it to someone.

    The iPad pro/iOS handles pdf's like sh*t, I totally hate it. -.-

    Me neither. I use Drawboard when I'm working in Windows and Samsung Write on PDF when I'm using my GN5 to sign something. Haven't lost a signature in transmission.

    Nope - sorry - that's Surface - I corrected my first post. I never found anything reliable on iPad (maybe Goodreader?)

    What's truly a PITA is why aren't good inking tools embedded in Acrobat Pro when you paying so much for that POS?

    What? I've been electronically signing documents for over a decade. In the early days, I had to actually buy software from China to ink in office documents before MS added the feature. Have been using PaperPort for years that let me sign PDF.

    Yeah, from 2004. Interesting getting the procurement through:

    Meanders Software R&D,
    Shanghai Rongcheng System Integration Co. Ltd.,
    Shanghai, People's Republic of China

    Same here. Drawboard has been flawless for me. I have a professor this semester who has gone paperless and encourages inking for our engineering homework. No issues. However, I have had issues with Xodo, which I also tried for the fun of it, where sometimes my inking does not show up, forcing me to resort to printing the PDF via a PDF printer for my inked additions to show up in every PDF viewer (including my university's online PDF reader which had problems with Xodo-inked PDFs). I have since stuck to Drawboard and I have had no problems whatsoever.

    I know, right? It has Optical Character Recognition advanced enough to interpret your handwriting and allow you to insert additional text matching your handwriting. Yet no decent ink support to speak of. Typical of Adobe, they are likely waiting to release an expensive inking plug-in which they will happily sell to you, since it is so feature-rich (translation: no better than Drawboard) and the first time ever on their Abode platform, for only $4.99 a month or the low one-time fee of $199.
