    Hi.

     

    I am trying to create a PDF form in Jotform. I either create the form then tell Acrobat to look for the Jotform URL to create the form or create a PDF form in Jotform then edit in Acrobat.

     

    All is great, except I have fields that go across multiple pages, especially Matrixs. I cannot seem to edit this in Acrobat and I cannot seem to force clean page breaks in the Jotform created PDF.

    Question is, is there any way I can ensure that when creating a PDF I can ensure that a form field does not get chopped in half by page breaks?

    I am sorry to inform you, but I do not think that there is any easy way to change this behavior. The PDF layout depends on the form itself, so we can try to modify the form in order to get some other layout.

    If you provide a link to the form in question, we will be able to check this. Thank you!

    I am very happy to announce that our amazing team of developers have just released the Fillable PDF Form Creator.

    http://www.jotform.com/fillable-pdf-form-creator/

    This will allow you to accomplish what you were looking for on this thread.  The feature might still show bugs on some forms, but it works beautifully for most of the forms.

    Please give it a try and let us know your feedback.
