    Will we ever be able to import from a file not just via a website? I have gone through some of the forum for the answer to this but not finding it. The only other option was to use Adobe Form Central but that is no longer available. Is there a reason we cannot import from a file?

    My apologies, can you please provide some more information so we could assist properly? What do you need to import from a file? 

    Form submissions can be imported using our Import Submissions application: Import-App-Easily-Import-Your-Excel-or-CSV-Data-into-JotForm

    I am creating a few forms on JotForm. These forms exist already as an Adobe file. I would be easier if I could import the files and tweak instead of recreating the form.

    How do I find this when I log on to the site (not using the link)? When I click "Create Form" this is not an option.

     I understand that is the link and how upload from there. My question is how do I get to this location on your website after I log in? This is what I see once I log in. Where do I click next?

    Unfortunately, the screenshot which you tried to upload in the forum was not loaded here.

    I would suggest you follow this guide to upload the screenshot in the forum:

    https://www.jotform.com/help/438-How-to-Post-Screenshots-to-Our-Support-Forum

    Do you already have Jotform forms in your account which you want to convert it to the fillable pdf one? If yes, you can directly convert them into fillable PDF from you my forms page (https://www.jotform.com/myforms/).

    Refer to this screenshot:

    If you want to create fillable pdf form out of your non-fillable pdf form then you may follow the link (https://www.jotform.com/fillable-pdf-form-creator/) and process provided by my colleague. There is no separate section in your profile for this. You can easily access this from the URL provided.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks.
