Stamp Pallet


Use the Stamps Palette to add a custom stamp to the Stamp Tool. Docsvault built-in PDF Editor has a feature called the Stamp Tool. ico.tool.annot.stamp.32   The Stamp Tool can place an image on the page as though you were using a rubber stamp.  It comes with a number of default stamps, and you can also create your own custom stamps.  This is a very convenient way to repeatedly add the same content to documents.


Stamps can be created from image files or PDF documents.  To create your own stamp to use with the Stamp Tool you need to open the Stamps Palette and add a new item.  Click the small arrow beneath the Stamp Tool to display all currently available stamps in a pop up window.




At the bottom of this window you can select "Show Stamps Palette" to open up the Stamps Palette dialogue box where you can add, rename and delete stamps from your palette.

Things to consider when creating a stamp:


Most Image files are in a Raster format, and will pixelate when zoomed to a high degree, so make your stamp from an image pre-sized to what you need.

PDF documents can be either raster or vector based so be sure you understand what type you have.

If you want to have a transparent background to your stamp, you will need to use a suitable image format (.gif or .png being two common ones, but not jpg) or pdf.
