Squigles, like you make with a pen on cheques and credit card forms.
And birthday cards.

I've got one scanned as a GIF and I can paste it onto my OpenOffice
documents :-)

I'd love to do the same with those PDF forms that say they can't be
saved once filled in.

That problem is not related to hylafax at all.

PDF forms are supposed to be printed, then filled by hand; sometimes downloaded, filled (on-computer, off-line), then printed (not saved). Then you sign, and hand over the counter, or fax via fax machine.

If you want to fax via computer, you also need a scanner.

Pasting your graphical signature, which could be illegal, means you have to use a graphical editor like perhaps The Gimp to do that manipulation on the postscript file printed from the filled form.

Or, the entity supplying the forms, could make a contract with Adobe so that you can fill the forms online and hand them over electronically, with electronic signature (not fax, a special document form server). Which would be the proper, and expensive, way. And maybe only for windows, dunno. Proprietary, certainly.

This is not an hylafax problem at all.
