Allowing signature/stamp file to be added to signature field

I would find it useful if as alternative to scribbling buddy or divemaster signatures into the ipad, scanned signatures/stampes could be added to the signature field.

just digitizing my paper logbook and would live to get these sign/stamps into the signature field. Thanks for considering.

Thanks for your thoughts on adding support for an image capture of the signature/stamp. This is something that we are looking at adding in a future update to Dive Log. It is not an insignificant task as it would require a database change (which requires coordinating with the developer of applications that are compatible with Dive Log). The signature is currently stored as a vector representation (this saves significant space in the database vs an image). We do have some ideas about how to best support this feature request, but do not have a timeline at this point in time for when it might be available.

Cheers,

Greg

Apologies for bumping up an old thread, but has there been any progress on this? I would love to see this feature make it to the app.

No problem. It is a fair question.

We have been working with our 3rd party partners on an updated database format that will allow for improved the handling of signatures. We have some features implemented internally as we work through the database details but we are still a little ways away from general availability (we need to coordinate the release on all platforms).

We appreciate your interest in this and you making us aware that it is still important to you. I apologize for the delay in getting this done.

Cheers,

Greg

thanks so far for this option. I ade an import from my former logbook from windows to dive log - Mac. I would like to delete and/or change a stamp. but in editing mode I can't find any option or opportunity to do this. Is it a mistake of mine or is this option (yet) not implemented. Once you gave a stamp you'll Neve be able to delete or change it?
Thanks in advance for helping

Hi aoyan,

To delete the stamp on iPhone you have two choices:
1) Swipe from right to left on the stamp in the Dive Details view and a "Delete" button will be revealed
or
2) Tap on the stamp row in the Dive Details view and the list of options will include "Delete" as the first item

to delete the stamp on iPad juts tap the "Edit" button in the toolbar at the top while viewing the dive and then tap the stamp image. You should get a popover with "Delete" as an option.

Changing the stamp is simply a matter of choosing the "Take Photo" or "Choose Existing Photo" when you get the list of options after tapping the stamp image.

If those steps are not resulting in the ability to delete the Stamp please let me know.

Cheers,

Greg

Thank You Greg,
I was wrong here I think. I was asking for the DiveLogDT :-(

Hi aoyan,

Please stay tuned on this one. It looks like you might have uncovered a regression in DiveLogDT. In theory you should be able to click the Edit button and then select the Tap image and hit the "Delete" key on your keyboard to remove it. However, this appears to not be working right now.

You can change the stamp image by simply dragging a new image to the stamp area while in Edit mode. That still seems to be working fine.

I'll update this thread once we know more. Sorry about the inconvenience.

Cheers,

Greg

Hello,

I found the signature field, next to the buddy - the button with the 3 horizontal stripes.
But in my iPhone Dive Log app, I added a stamp too. But I can't seem to find that stamp (field) back in Dive Log 6 ?

Thanks,

Tom
