    You can do that with our PDF Embedder widget https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/pdf_embedder. You need to have that PDF uploaded online and you just use the URL in our widget. 

    Could that work for you?

    Please let us know.

    Thank you!

    You have to upload your PDF to some online storage, Google Drive, OneDrive, DropBox. And then you use that URL to insert it in the PDF Embedder.

    If you need any assistance with inserting the URL in Widget please let us know.

    Thank you!
