    PDF Fillable Form: Why background image does not fit the form's page?

    Asked by Katieeee on June 21, 2017 at 10:07 PM
    Every time I try to convert it, the background picture gets disoriented (doesn't fit the page, has lines in it, etc.)

    I cloned your form (https://form.jotform.ca/Katieeee/imported-form-google-docs---create-) and generated a fillable PDF version. I was able to replicate the issue. It seems that the background image doesn't fit the form's page and has lines.

    I will forward this issue to our dev team, however, we can't give you an ETA for when this will be fixed. Rest assured you will be informed in this thread if there are any updates.

    For the meantime, I would suggest removing first the background image or use any other image for generating the Fillable PDF of your form and see if this helps.

    Regards.
