I had a signature set in Preview, and even a time or two used it. But today, I opened a pdf and click in the signature field and was presented with this tiny tiny box, and handles would not open up. I could not figure out what to click in preview, and could just not get the preview signature into the pdf.

After a few tries, the signature I've had for two years in preview is gone. Where did it go? Can I get it back?

If not how do I get it back in there. I've held that paper up a few times now and am rusty, can't figure it out.

I could have scanned a signature 30 times, in the time I've lost.

Man, great idea, I guess does not work so intuitively in real life.

Actually I got it done. Don't see way to delete this post, so leave it up. Stuggle though!

That tiny box is probably a text box. Try typing into it. To add a new signature, go to Tools --> Annotate --> Manage Signatures, or customize the toolbar to add the Markup toolbox.
