    Do you want to upload PDF to make it fillable PDF created by jotform? Try uploading your PDF form here: https://www.jotform.com/adobe-formscentral-alternative/.

    Click the IMPORT PDF FORM to import your PDF.

    Thanks. But I attempted this before I sent you the request. When I use this
    path, I get the following error:
    "The file you uploaded does not have fillable areas. Please import a
    fillable PDF or go back and start with a blank form."
    I know for a fact that the file I am attempting to upload is fillable. I
    have attached it for your reivew.

    Not all forms can be converted to Jotform forms unfortunately.  If you'd like to send the PDF via email to support@jotform.com with a subject line "ATTN: Support Thread 1700041", we can check the file upload from our end to see if we get the same error.
