Hello,

There's anyway to add a signature line to Word or OpenOffice documents using SecureBlackBox.

I've seen that it is possible if you're working with xps Documents, but I haven't found how to do it with these other formats.

Thanks in advance.

No, it is not possible at the moment.
The main problem is how to positioning signature lines in Office Open XML format. I'll take a look if it possible to use an absolute positioning.
In opposite an XPS format has a strict rules how and where a signature definition is placed. But as far as I remember, neither Internet Explorer not Microsoft XPS Viewer show them.
As for OpenOffice documents, last standard 1.2 doesn't support a visual representation of a signature.
