Depending on your configuration, you may be able to sign an image document using a pre-configured signature (redaction bitmap).

To sign an image document using a pre-configured redaction bitmap:

  1. Retrieve and open an image document you would like to sign.
  2. Right-click and select Redaction Bitmaps | Insert Redaction Bitmap. The Add Redaction Bitmap dialog box is displayed.
    Note:

    When another user has a lock on the document, Insert Redaction Bitmap is unavailable.

  3. Select the signature you would use and click Add. The signature is displayed on the document. Move the signature to the location on the document where you want it to permanently reside.
  4. Repeat step 3 for as many signatures as you would like.

    At this point, (before permanently making the signature part of the document) you can delete the signature by right-clicking the Status Bar and choosing Redaction Bitmaps | Delete redaction bitmap or Redaction Bitmaps | Delete all redaction bitmaps.

    CAUTION:

    You can only delete redaction bitmaps before creating a redacted image. Once the signature is burned into the image, it cannot be removed. The original image is altered, no additional document is created.

    CAUTION:

    If a note, redaction, burned markup, or deficiency is not in the location you expect, do not save or sign the document until the location has been corrected by your system administrator. When the document is saved or signed, the pending redaction, burned markup, or deficiency is permanently placed in the shifted location. The shifting of notes that do not permanently alter the document can be corrected any time by your system administrator.

  5. When you are satisfied with the signature or signatures, save (burn) them onto the document by right-clicking the Status Bar and selecting Redaction Bitmaps | Create Redacted Image.
    Note:

    Closing the document viewer or the OnBase client application will not prompt you to save, and any unsaved signatures will be lost.

    Note:

    When another user has a lock on the document, Create Redacted Image is unavailable.

  6. The signatures become part of the document.Although the signature is a permanent part of the document, it is not tracked by OnBase. It is also possible to have more than one type of signature on a document, so if you have a Digital Signature on the same document as a redacted bitmap signature, only the Digital Signature will be tracked in the footer of the document.

    See the following example - This document has been signed using a redact bitmap. The signature is clearly present and the document can be printed or e-mailed with the signature intact. It has been burned into the document and is a permanent part of the document, but retains no authentication properties in OnBase.
