    Asked on November 01, 2018 at 11:48 AM


    I tried your new pdf editor, its great.

    I want to use the new pdf editor for some of my new forms and the old version for others.

    the reason is that if i choose to use the new version, all of my old forms pdf set are geting mixet up (fileds, values..).

    so, is there a way to use both?

    what can i do?

    Currently, there is no way to achieve this. The switch is account-specific so all your forms will switch over to the new editor.

    If you would like I can submit this as a feature request to our Level 2 team to make the switch form-specific. I cannot guarantee the feature will be implemented however it will be looked at and reviewed.

    To implement the new editor, you have to check all your older forms that have a PDF setup and edit the design to suit your needs with the new editor. The new editor has much better features including templates that you can use to quickly design great looking PDFs quickly.

     please forward it to the level 2 team.

    Those are the reasons:


    Our form language is Hebrew- means every time we creating new form , we need to manually chance the field location on the old (and new) pdf editor from left to right.

    We now have about 60 production forms, with the old version of pdf editor – we "wasted" lots of time manually adjusted the forms to Hebrew format (right to left)

    When I tried to use the new pdf  version on one of the forms, its automatically changes all of the old forms pdf edition to the new one – which  damaged the old ones template – cant be used without manually changing again each form.  

    So now, I need to spend lots of man ours on adjusting it again to the right to left format ( and the changing must be simultaneously (!!) because all those forms are being used by our costumers)

    Your fix should be simple

    Adding the option to chance the fields order from left to right ( and not one by one, manually)

    Let us use the old + new format simultaneously, until we have time to make adjustments to each of our old format forms.


    I hope I explained my self properly – and for quick fix by your dev team.
