    I have been collecting respondent data online using jotform and manually retyping the data into an editable PDF to be emailed printed and signed.  I cannot change the format of the existing form. Is there some way to upload the existing editable PDF and transfer the relevant field data from submissions to automatically populate the editable PDF?

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to prepopulate the data to the editable PDF. If you want to display the submission data on a PDF report rather using editable PDF, you may consider customizing the PDF submission report by following the guide below:

    Alternatively, you may add the Print button to the form so that you can print the form after filling the data.

    Hope this information helps!
