Foxit PDF Editor updated to version 11.2.0 and now I cannot find the Fill & Sign icon under the Protect tab anymore. How could I access the "Fill & Sign" feature in Foxit PDF Editor starting from V11.2.0 but lower than version 12.0?
Cause and solution:
Since Foxit PDF Editor V11.2.0,we have integrated Foxit eSign which is a new eSignature service into English version of Foxit PDF Editor. Currently, when you click "Foxit eSign" tab, Foxit PDF Editor will show "Foxit eSign" related features there by default (For version 11.2.0,we have to click on Protect>Foxit eSign to bring up the Foxit eSign tab). When you want to switch to use the Foxit ink sign feature (Formerly known as Foxit Fill&Sign feature), you have to click over the "Switch to Ink Sign" button after you have entered into the Foxit eSign tab.
If you need to use the Foxit ink sign feature frequently and never use the Foxit eSign feature,you may also choose to disable the Foxit eSign service in Foxit PDF Editor temporarily by going to "File"tab>"Preferences">"PDF Sign", check the option "Disable Foxit eSign service",click over the "OK" button to apply the setting.
Then Foxit PDF Editor will only show you the "Foxit ink Sign" related features by default under the "Foxit eSign" tab.
This article is applicable to Foxit PDF Editor for windows desktop versions starting from V11.2.0 but lower than V12.0. And we only provide Foxit eSign under the English version of Foxit PDF Editor. Under other languages in multilingual build, only provide Ink Sign feature (formerly known as Fill&Sign feature) for users. There will be no Foxit eSign-related button/option under other languages in the multilingual build.
For Foxit PDF Editor V12.0 or greater versions, you could find the "Fill&Sign" feature under the "Protect" tab directly.
