Typed Signatures

Got a question on signatures.

I've got Formidable forms linked to Make.com via webhooks.
When a form is submitted it pushes to data to Make.com and then Make.com generates a PDF using the data then writes the data to airtable.

This works great for drawn signatures but not for typed as you only get the typed text, not an image of it.

With drawn you get: Signature: "<img src="https://comain.com/wp-content/uploads/formidable/signatures/signature-62-35.png?timestamp=1715069667" />"

but with typed you get:
Signature: "Text Typed In Signature Box"

Is there a way to get the signature plugin for Formidable forms to save the signature as a .png the way it is displayed in the signature box when typed and then use that link in the variables sent via the API?

Thanks, Scott

Interesting question. One thought I have is to use frm_after_create_entry and create your own image file that you store in a hidden field.

I unfortunately do not have the required coding ability to do that, but that looks like it could work.
Might have to try and work it out/teach myself some coding!

Thanks Rob. One thing I did think of is if I can set the font displayed in the signature field, I could then just use the same font on the PDF where it adds the text. Any ideas how I'd go about that?
