    Acrobat Custom Stamps

    ADOBE ACROBAT 5.0

    There not being an Acrobat forum, I'll post this here in the hope that someone may be able to help.

    I have created a pdf file for use as custom stamps but have not been able to get the program to recognise it - i.e. the custom stamps do not appear in the stamps list.

    Has anyone had any experience with this?

    Tony.

    Re: Acrobat Custom Stamps

    I just went and had a play with it in Acrobat 6 so this might not apply for you but...

    In Acrobat 6 to add the stamps that already exist but aren't loaded I went to the Commenting Toolbar and clicked on the dropdown Stamp tool and selected 'Manage Stamps'
    Then in that dialog I chose Create
    In that dialog I selected an acrobat file and it showed me each graphic in that file to select
    I created a new category and typed a name for the chosen image and then clicked OK and OK again.

    After doing this I had a new category and could select the new stamp item to add to the page.

    Perhaps the steps in Acrobat 5 are close enough that you can work it out.

    Andrew:

    Thanks for your response. In fact the 'Manage Stamps' command is not in v5. However, after re-visiting the help files I have managed to fully understand (and reproduce) the requirerd steps and can now see my customised stamps.

    I can post the steps here, if anyone is interested.

    Tony.
    Regards,

    Tony
