Using Okular to sign documents with handwritten signatures

Howdy folks! I thought I’d share a tip I just wrote about how you can use Okular to insert a handwritten signature into a document, if you happen to live in a part of the world that doesn’t yet use digital signatures and handwritten signatures are valid and required.


Thank you for the tip.
Is there any way to keep aspect ratio of the signature box while drawing?

At the moment, no, that hasn’t been implemented. I think it’s a good idea though.

Click to start drawing the box, then hold down CTRL + SHIFT and the proportions of the box stay locked as you drag the mouse about.

Release the mouse button before releasing the keys.

Oh wow I didn’t know that! Maybe I’ll submit a patch to make it scale proportionally by default.
