Hi There,

Thank you for your inquiry and sharing details.

I am afraid currently Aspose.Pdf for Cloud API does not provide Add Text to PDF functionality. I have logged an enhancement ticket in our issue tracking system. We will further look into the details of this enhancement and will keep you updated on the status of its implementation via this forum thread. However, please note that it will not be available in short time.

For sign document or page you can use our below APIs!/pdf/PdfPages_PostSignPage!/pdf/PdfDocument_PostSignDocument

If you have any other question, please feel free to ask.

We are sorry for this inconvenience.
