    This inquiry relates to the forms at www.njticservice.com.  This is how the date is currently displayed on the form. Submission Date
    2018-11-13 09:07:27

    https://www.jotform.com/submissions/51803164428150

    But when save it as a pdf it reversed the month and day which is confusing. https://www.jotform.com/pdf-editor/51803164428150?preview=true&submission=4179272452094537744

    When I unpreview the form I get the following:
    https://www.jotform.com/pdf-editor/1082611004847158?submission=4179272452094537744
    But when I right or left click on the date field I do not get the small box labelled with the red “2” in your screen shot.
    Instead, I get the following blank screen

    It worked just fine for us. Just click the Date and it should show 3 icons, settings, duplicate and delete. Click on the settings icon to change its format.

    Here,

    1. Click this link https://www.jotform.com/pdf-editor/51803164428150

    2. Click the Date then the properties icon as shown in the first screenshot.

    Make sure you are logged in to your Jotform account on desktop or laptop to make this changes.

    This is all I get. The colored blocks rotate and change colors but I let it run for more than a minute and nothing changed.
