Currently I export PDFs from Pages.app, open it in Preview.app and insert a previously saved signature. Is it possible to save a signature in Pages.app to insert it to documents later on?

  • The best solution to this issue might be to save a signature as a standalone PDF, then drag the PDF into a Pages document when required. This is essentially the way that PDFpen handles the problem, and I assume Preview does the same thing. The PDF applications just have a better way of keeping track of "library" images. – Dustin Wheeler Oct 16 '18 at 21:10
  • That’s an interesting idea. Do pdf files have size limitations? Like could a pdf be 20x50. px big? – Niko Oct 17 '18 at 4:42
  • I don't know of any size limitations. If they exist, they're much smaller and/or much larger than anything I've ever encountered. My signature file is a vector image (179x32) I created by tracing over my scanned signature using Affinity Designer (Inkscape or Illustrator would work just as well). If you already have a scanned image, just crop it down using Preview.app and export as PDF (or PNG, if you want a raster file). – Dustin Wheeler Oct 17 '18 at 15:55
