How To Add Signature In Notes Iphone 1

Have you ever been in a situation where you had to print a document, sign it, and then scan it back but don’t know how to go about it? It’s not a pretty experience to have if you have had one! You shouldn’t have to go through such trouble if you own an iPhone. The note app on iPhone is a great way to scan and sign documents. So, how do you add signatures to your iPhone’s note apps? 

Quick Answer

There are two main ways to add signatures in Notes on iPhones. You could use a pre-built signature that you had saved on your device. Or, you could use the markup feature to draw your signature in Notes with your finger or an Apple pencil. 

Adding signature with these methods also works on other supported apps like mail, files, and photos. In this article, we’ll learn how to use the markup to add a signature or draw a new signature on the go. 

Two Ways To Add Signature in Notes on iPhone

Signing a document on iOS devices is now easy, thanks to the markup feature. The markup feature allows iOS users to fill out images and PDF forms and add signatures. Interestingly, there are two ways to use the iOS markup feature to add your signature to a PDF you scan or an image you upload on Notes and other supported apps. Below we explained the steps in detail of how to go about it. 

Method #1: Using A Fresh Signature With Markup  

You can directly sign a document from a supported app that lets you access the markup feature, like the Note app on iPhone. Signing a document this way is excellent, but the only challenge is that if you don’t have an Apple pen, it may feel counterintuitive to sign your signature with your finger. 

Luckily, this method allows you access to tools like the ability to change the pen’s color and an eraser. So, even if you make a mistake while signing, you can always erase the part you don’t need. 

Here’s how to use the markup feature to add a fresh signature in Notes.

  1. Open Notes and upload a document or scan one by clicking on the camera icon.
  2. Align the document’s edges if you scanned an image to ensure it is straight and even. 
  3. Click the share icon at the top-right corner of your screen, depending on the version of your iOS device.
  4. Tap the “Markup” in the “Share” menu to open the markup feature.
  5. Zoom the document to the area where you want to add the signature.  
  6. Pick a pen color and adjust the size to what suits you best. 
  7. Draw your signature with your finger or an Apple pen. 
  8. Adjust the signature size and then save the file to finish. 
Remember

Signing a new signature every time could be a bit of work and lead to inconsistency in your signature.

Method #2: Using A Pre-built Signature With Markup

Another way to add signatures in Notes is by using one you pre-built. The advantage of using this method is that you can add your signature to any file on the go without signing multiple times. All you have to do is add the signature, adjust the size, and that’s it. 

Apple even allows you to add more than one signature in the markup feature. So, even if you have different signatures for various purposes, you can always add them to the markup and use them when necessary. 

Here’s how to use the markup feature to add a pre-built signature in Notes.

  1. Open Notes to upload a document or scan one by clicking the camera icon
  2. Align the document’s edges if you scanned an image to ensure it is straight and even. 
  3. Click the share icon at the top-right corner of your screen, depending on the version of your iOS device. 
  4. Tap the “Markup” option in the “Share” menu to open the markup feature. 
  5. Tap the plus (+) button at the bottom-right corner of your screen, depending on the version of your iOS device. 
  6. Select a pre-built signature, if any exists, or build one.
  7. Adjust the signature size, set where needed, then save to finish
Tip

A pre-built signature is the easiest way to add a signature in the note app, and all you have to do is select the signature you want to add.

Conclusion

So, when next you find yourself in a situation where you need to sign a document, you can do it on your iPhone. Don’t forget to use the eraser if needed. If you find drawing your signature difficult, rotate your iPhone to landscape orientation for better access.
