FAQ

What can i use this Add-on for?
This Add-on allows you to use your Scriptel signature pad to add signatures to Google Docs directly in your browser.
What is Omniscript, and how do I use it?
More information about OmniScript can be found here.
Can you detect if my device connected?
Yes and no, for ProScript devices you will see both dots at the bottom of the Add-on window as green after installing OmniScript. Unfortunately for EasyScript devices there is no way to show your device is connected before signing.
Why is my signature not showing up, or disappearing?
Your signature may not appear in the window after you finish signing until you press the "OK" button on your pad.
What are the two circles on the bottom for?
The left dot is an indicator that will turn green when OmniScript is installed and working properly. The right dot is an indicator that will turn green if a ProScript device is connected.
Note: For EasyScript users both dots may appear grey, but you will still be able to sign.
Why doesn't the Signature size slider change the size of the preview? Will my signature always be that size?
The preview window is a fixed size and cannot be adjusted for larger previews, but after you add your signature it will appear the size you selected.
What do I need to use this Add-on?
Requires an active internet connection and a Scriptel signature pad.
How can I customize the colors I want to use?
Use the color selectors in the sidebar, an additional menu will appear if you choose "Custom" or click on the preview box.
Why can’t I change the background color?
By default the checkbox for "Transparent Background" is checked, if you would like a background color simply uncheck the box and select your color.
Will the lines in the signature window show up when I add my signature?
No, only your signature.
My signature didn't go where I intended it to, Is there any way around this?
Where your signature appears after adding it is based on the position of your cursor, simply click where you want the signature to appear before adding and it should appear as intended.
Alternatively, after you have added your signature you may click and drag to re-position it where you want it.
