    I have my signature stored in Preview. it was originally captured on a 10.9 Machine, and I have upgraded all Macs to 10.10.
    Im trying to find a way to export and import my signature to a second Mac, but the steps for 10.9 dont seem to work for machines running 10.10.

    any ideas?

    Seems like it would just be less work to re-create the signature, no?

    Not yet, but I'm going to try on a work Mac with an iSight and see if I can transfer it to my Mini at home (not TBD or Isght) - and see if theres a clean cut process....

    i believe they can be transferred via iCloud. i've had a few signatures transfer over from one mac to another just by being linked through iCloud

    must be a new addition, because noticed that with my Mail rules. they seemed to have migrated in the background disabled. so either an update in 10.10 brought that..ill try it out this evening

    So far the signature I mad on a MacBook Pro does not sync to the Mac mini. Preview is enabled in icloud drive as well...

    Are you sure they're Preview signatures and not Mail.app signatures?
