  2. Once you reach the Add Fields section of your request, you will need to perform these actions to edit your document:
    • Look for various options for fields on the left-hand editor.
    • Select Text, and drop it anywhere on your document.

      Tip: You can also add other fields such as a signature, initials, date, and checkbox, and modify their format and style.

      Note: Fields are always assigned to a specific individual. Make sure to thoroughly review the recipient of the fields in your document using the right-hand editor, and make any necessary adjustments.

  3. As you add fields to your document, pay attention to the style editor which will appear on the right-hand side of your screen. With this editor, you can explore available actions:
    • Prefill Text: Incorporate prefill text for your recipient's convenience. They will then have the choice to either use the text you've pre-filled or input their own text (optional).
    • Field Hint: Type in a hint for your recipient to find.
    • Select the font, color, and size of your preference for your text field (optional).
  4. Click on Next. You have now added your hint!
  5. Continue with your signature request as prompted.
    Note: The moment your recipient enters their text into your displayed text field on the document, your hint will vanish.
