    Apologies for the inconveniences this may have caused to you. 

    I have checked the issue on my end and I can see the issue with the fields labels, it seems to happen with check boxes on my end, I will forward this thread to our second level so our developers can take a look on it. 

    I would also suggest you to check this guide about PDF fillable forms so you know which fields are not available on PDF forms: JotForm-Fillable-PDF-Creator-With-All-Points

    We will let you know as soon as we get any update about it.
