Post subject:  [PDFSharp] Trouble understanding how to find specific fields

Hey there,

Sorry to bother you.

Currently I'm writing a small application to help add signatures and passwords to a series of PDFs at a specific location. The PDFs have been created from a Word template.
Adding the signatures/passwords works great, however some of the PDFs have the signatures in slightly the wrong spot. I had originally just messed with the coordinates to find the sweet spot, but after testing the issue of the offset signatures came up. So I'm looking to find the area where the signature is supposed to be and then just add the signature at that location plus or minus some x or y value.

I tried using some PDF viewers to look for the field but I can't find anything related to the fields string (see attachment). Since it's not a fill-able field I can find any Rect value (or anything for that matter).

Basically I was hoping to find the string "Signature of employer or authorized person" and place the signature at some x,y just above that, but I'm not sure how to reliably go about finding something when it all seems to be gibberish.

Happy to clarify if needed.
