    I made the form at https://form.jotform.com/73215108284149

    I want the entire thing to come over in email or PDF or inbox instead of just the fields the person fills in...Is that a better description?

    Sorry for the confusion, Let me clarify your question.

    You wanted to create a form in which the form would be embedded to an or email not just the the value of the fields in the form?

    If so, by defeaulty the headers,text fields are not included in the notification emails.You'll be able to add only the fields from the form to the notifications. However,the email composer is a full editor that allows you to insert grahpics,tables, etc.

    Another method is to just get the PDF version of the submission. You have to add the PDF Link tag in the email settings:

    Go to form fields

    and select PDF link

    And then to include headers,texts and images in the PDF, you will have to check "Show Headers and Text" in the form submissions page settings

    Go to my Forms and click your form then click submissions

    Then you will find the settings here in the corner

    then click show headers and texts.


    Hopefully this answers your questions.

    Best Regards.

    Fantastic. Worked really well..Anyway to increase the resolution? If I
    print to a PDF using the print button, it's full res, but the pdf in
    submissions is a bit fuzzy
