    You can actually make a PDF version of the form that you can print out.

    1. Go to My Forms

    2. Right click on the desired form.

    3. Choose 'Create PDF Form'

    Let us know if you need other assistance.

    Yes - You can create a PDF that way, however there are several bugs in it.  Drop-downs, radio buttons and check boxes do not work.

    This issue was already forwarded to our development team. However, we have not heard of any updates yet.

    To expedite the resolution for this problem, I have submitted yet another ticket to our developers.

    We will let you know when this gets fixed.

    Hello Everyone!

    It's been a while but here's a great news!

    We are very pleased to inform you that we have just released a Fillable PDF Form Creator. You can now export your forms into a fillable PDF form and use it offline. Most of the standard fields are now supported including, check boxes, radio buttons, drop downs and even matrix tables.

    Your users can now save the filled pdf locally and sent it back to you or they can submit it directly on the PDF by clicking the submit button. It works similarly when submitting your web form.

    http://www.jotform.com/fillable-pdf-form-creator 

    Please try it and let us know your feedback.

    Cheers!
