The printable PDF feature seems to no longer be available. If this is the case, you should remove this page: https://www.jotform.com/fillable-pdf-form-creator/
If it is not the case and you do still offer printable PDFs, then you need updated documentation.

Did you experience any issue with Fillable PDF creator since I'm not able to replicate any issue?
When you upload your PDF form through this form:
You should receive an email like this one:
And, depending on your PDF, you should receive the email regarding completion as well.
We'll wait for your response.

I have a similar issue: generating a pdf file from an existing JotForm does not seem to work properly, as an empty pdf file is generated. I'm using this option:
(It's in Dutch, but the menu option is "Create a PDF-form")
Unfortunately I cannot attach the created form to this post, but it's just a PDF file that you can open, but without any content.

@Nik_C I'm not trying to convert a PDF to a form, I was trying to create a PDF form. If you go to this page https://www.jotform.com/fillable-pdf-form-creator/ and try to follow the instructions given, I think you'll see that it does not work. Thanks.

I tested the Create PDF From option and it is working properly. Once I selected this option I was redirected to our From Builder to create a form.
Once you create an online form, you can convert it to a Fillable PDF form.
To find more about Fillable PDF forms, I would suggest you to check this guide:
If you have a form that cannot be converted to a Fillable PDF form, please provide us a name or a link of that from.

The link you provided: https://www.jotform.com/blog/193-How-to-Create-a-Fillable-PDF-Form-using-JotForm is totally useful and now i understand how to do it.
The link I was referencing above: https://www.jotform.com/fillable-pdf-form-creator/ is not useful at all. I was mostly just trying to help y'all out with some user feedback. Do with it what you want ;-)
