How to add a signature to a Custom Report

This page has some instructions to get you started with Customizing Reports

Often, our reports put the signature line in the pageOne_header.html file, but sometimes it is found in the pageOne_footer.html file (or pageTwo... if the signature line is on the second page of the report).

The signature section needs to be updated to add the image in the middle of it like this:

<td rowspan="3" class="signature">
I certify that the entries in this log are true,<br />
<img src="<?ltp special=reportDirectoryPath; ?>/signature.png" width="170" height="25">
<div class="sigLine"></div>
Pilot's Signature:

Then add this line to the bottom of the style.css file:

.sigLine {
border-bottom: solid 1px;
padding-left: 4px;
width: 98%;

If you need to get a digital copy of your signature, I'd suggest using Preview's built-in signature feature to capture it: Preview's Signature FunctionYou can then paste your signature into a blank document, resize it properly, and take a screenshot of your signature (command+shift+4, click and drag the area). Name the digital signature image “signature” and drag and drop it into the custom report folder and you should be all set.
If the image appears to be slightly misshapen (too long or too tall), you can fine-tune the "width" & "height" values in the above code. 
Additional assistance with this or any other LogTen Pro issue is available here or by contacting support in the app by going to More > Help > Contact Support.

  • What size does the signature need to be to look correct on the logbook and how does one achieve that? I followed the steps above and it looks wonky--abnormally wide and narrow.

  • @htaylorclements...You should be able to adjust the Width & Height sizes in the above code to fine-tune the sizing. If the issue is more than fine-tuning it might be that the image file you uploaded was too big or too small from the start. If you are still having problems submit a ticket and we can address your issue directly.
