    Yes, that is correct, widgets will not work in PDF because of how the PDF is constructed.

    And unfortunately, again, because of the nature of the PDF, we don't have a signature that will work on PDF version of the form, the signature widget will turn in the regular text field when the form is converted to PDF.

    Maybe you could guide your users to go to an external link to sign the form, by adding a link to your form. But in that case, the online form would serve a better job.

    If you have any further questions please let us know.

    Thank you!
