Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Onboarding Dashboard
  2. Click "Details"
  3. Click "Take Actions" > Onboarding Documents
  4. Download the document.
  5. The signature is displayed in the format "first name + last name".


The locale of the field does not use "last name + first name" name format.

For example, when the locale is English, it will display the name as "first name + last name" based on the English name format.


The format of the signature is dependent on the locale of the text field.

Please do as follows:

  1. Open the signed form through Adobe LiveCycle Designer.
  2. Click on name field to edit it.
  3. Change the Locale to the desired one that follows "last name + first name" name format.

Please refer to the guide to download Adobe LiveCycle Designer. For any further clarifications, please reach out to Adobe LiveCycle Designer support.
