This example shows how to update Text signature that was found using  search method.

Signature signature = new Signature("sampleSigned.pdf");
try {
    TextSearchOptions options = new TextSearchOptions();
    // search for text signatures in document
    List<TextSignature> signatures = signature.search(TextSignature.class, options);
    if (signatures.size() > 0) {
        TextSignature textSignature = signatures.get(0);
        // change Text property
        textSignature.setText("John Walkman");
        // change position
        textSignature.setLeft(textSignature.getLeft() + 50);
        textSignature.setTop(textSignature.getTop() + 50);
        // change size. Please note not all documents support changing signature size
        boolean result = signature.update("sampleSigned.pdf",textSignature);
        if (result) {
            System.out.print("Signature with Text '" + textSignature.getText() + "' was updated in the document ['sampleSigned.pdf'].");
        } else {
            System.out.print("Signature was not updated in  the document! Signature with Text '" + textSignature.getText() + "' was not found!");
