    I need to convert a visually complex form. I tried the pdf uploader but it failed. I found an online converter to change the pdf to html5 but, of course, it doesn't create the form fields. Is there a simple way to do this?

    You can try uploading your PDF form here (and select the third option: PDF Only):

    https://www.jotform.com/adobe-formscentral-alternative/

     

    Or you can try uploading your PDF here (and select the second option: convert PDF)

    I had tried the creator and it failed. I've tried the alternative - failed also.

    Hi,

    Can you also share to us access to your PDF form. We can check and do some test to identify why your PDF form could not be converted to JotForm PDF form.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Hi,

    Here’s a link to “MedicalHistory.pdf” in my Dropbox: https://www.dropbox.com/s/cxxwog519txpiz5/MedicalHistory.pdf?dl=0

    Thanks for providing the PDF. Upon checking, your PDF does not contain fillable fields. They are plain text and images. This is the reason why they are not converted into a web form.

    Your HTML file won't work either because those boxes are not form elements, they are simply plain images.

    We suggest creating the form from scratch in the form builder. It should be pretty easy.
