Inking feature on MS Word and Excel

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I want to use the ink feature in Microsoft Word for signing purposes.

But my problem is I cannot locate the ink feature.

Any other tools to sign digital documents and confirm the authentication of these?

I also want to digitally lock Excel files.

I am not familiar with other tools used to sign digital documents either in Word or Excel. But heres my suggestion. Its much easier solution for your problem.

Follow the steps below:

1. Write your signature on a clean paper with a dark ink pen. Make it clear.

2. If you have a scanner, please scan your signature and save it to your computer on JPG file.

3. On your computer, open your Microsoft Word. Click Insert and then select Picture. You can resize the image. Remove also unnecessary space. Double click the image and click Crop. Now you can resize the image as you wish.

Now save signature to use in the future and other documents. Click on the image to highlight, right click and select Auto Text-New. Then the dialog box will appear. Write the name you use for your signature and click ok.

4. Every time you want to use your digital signature, just simply go to Insert – Normal – then your signature name. Easy, no need to use ink your signature will automatically appear in your digital signature.

I hope it will help your problem.

There are two basic ways of using inking in Office. I will describe one by one.

Ink Drawing and Writing

  • To use the inking for drawing or writing purposes do the following.
  1. Go to menu bar and press insert and then in the menu click on picture and then chose ink drawing and writing. For more see the attached figure. 

Ink Annotations

  • These are used to use inking in a document. If you want to add signature you can do it by ink annotation.
  1. For this go to insert and click on ink annotation. See the image of an ink annotated document.
  2. You can also use ink comments in which you can comment using ink.
