From the Preview function, you will have to select Tools, Annotate, Signature, Manage signatures, then Create signatures in order to display the available solutions. The user can then choose between the Trackpad, his iPhone or iPad and the camera in the case of document scanning.
Once the signature is made, it will automatically appear in the application. the user to retrieve it and place it where he wishes.
Being able to sign a document on Mac from an iPhone or iPad makes it easier and more convenient.
