If you will be using signatures as part of your security settings in Mekorma, you will need to gather all needed signatures and transform them into a digital format. Please watch the video below to view step-by-step instructions, as recommended by Mekorma:
- Take a standard 8 ½ x 11 sheet of paper and draw a rectangle that represents the average signature field.
- Print (or make) as many copies as there are signers. For example, if six different signatures are needed, print six copies of the sheet with the empty box.
- Ask each signer to sign their name within the rectangle. There should be no more than one signature per page.
- Scan each sheet into a computer.
- Open the signatures one at a time in the Microsoft Paint application.
- With one of the signatures opened in Paint, click on the Select drop-down menu and choose Rectangular selection. Draw the selection box around the signature as closely as possible and then click Crop.
- Click on Resize and choose the Pixels button in the Resize and Skew window. Be sure that Maintain aspect ratio is checked, and adjust either the horizontal or vertical dimensions. A good choice for use in GP is a signature file with approximate dimensions of 220 × 50 pixels.
- Save your signature as a 16 color bitmap.
- Repeat the same procedure for all needed signatures, and store in a location accessible to an administrator for use in GP.
- If additional sizing is needed, you can always adjust within the Mekorma Configurator.
