    PDF Form version is non-fillable?

    Asked by dringram on December 14, 2012 at 09:08 PM

    I thought I was posting to a thread related to creating PDF forms? Anyway, here it is (again):

    I have created a pdf version of my form, however, I am not able to edit the fields (fill in the form). Does creating a pdf from create a non-fillable form? Also, will the submit button work for the pdf version as it does for the on-line version?

    Yes that is how it works, sorry about that. PDF is mainly used for printing purposes. However, you can use programs like Acrobat PDF so you can edit and input texts.

    Submit button is just an image so it can't work like the ones on the website version. Also, I don't think PDF will support that. :)

    Great news!

    We are very pleased to inform you that we have just released a Fillable PDF Form Creator. You can now export your forms into a fillable PDF form and use it offline. You can save the pdf locally or submit it on the PDF by clicking the submit button. It works similarly when you submit your web form.
