    I checked your form (http://www.jotform.ca/form/72456965198271) and I can see that it is the New Form Layout. I cloned your form and I was able to replicate the issue.

    Unfortunately, creating PDF is not yet supported using New Form Layout. However, you can switch to Legacy Form Layout and create a PDF then return back to the New Form Layout.

    To do that, please follow this guide:

    1. Open the form in the Form Builder.
    2. Go to the Settings section and select the Form Settings tab.
    3. Click the Show More Options button and change the Form Layout to Legacy Form Layout

    After that, follow this guide on how to create a PDF Form: https://www.jotform.com/help/212-How-to-Create-a-PDF-Form. When you're done, you can return to the New Form Layout again.

    If you're referring to download PDF submissions, please follow this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/73-How-to-Download-Form-Submissions-as-Excel-CSV-PDF

    I also escalated this issue to our developers so they can investigate it further. We will notify you on this thread once we have an update. 

    I hope this helps. Thank you.
