    How do I import a template from Word or PDF to JotForm?

    Asked by KyleS8531 on February 10, 2017 at 05:21 PM

    I have a PDF form that I want to convert into a Fillable PDF to put on my website, however, JotForm is not allowing me to import it. It says "Please Select" but it does not let me select anything except "Please Select".

    Unfortunately, the tool we have to import a form from a PDF file will work only with Adobe Forms Central forms, otherwise your PDF file will not work.

    You would need to create your form and then export it as PDF fillable form, this guide will help with that: How-to-Create-a-PDF-Form

    You may also use a template to use for your form, instead of creating it from a blank form, here's a guide where you will find forms already created that you may use: https://www.jotform.com/form-templates
