    It appears like you have changed the layout of the form, I just checked it, and this is how it displays:

    thank you for your reply.

    that is correct.

    however, that is not the format that is showing up, on pdf.

    we need to print the forms our candidates have filled up.

    this is how it looks like on the pdf form before printing.

    I see what you mean, unfortunately, the PDF submission report does not show up form fields, just the labels and the submitted data. However, there is a workaround to print your form with the user's filled data in it, please check this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/335-How-to-Print-the-Form-with-the-Users-Data

    Have you tried to add Print button to your form and print the form using Print button? 

    I have cloned your form and added Print button. This is how PDF looks like on my end I printed the form.

    It looks exactly the same as your live form.

    How to Print the Form with the Users Data
