    Hello,

    I've made a form that worked perfectly, but suddenly it changed the format in my pdf document.

    Instead of saying "... until 09.08.2019" it says "... until Friday, August 9, 2019"

    I cannot find the issue and don't understand why it suddenly does this when it worked before - and I didn't change the form/pdf-editor, so it's not anything I could have done??

    that won’t work since the date is written within brackets in a text field, so what your video shows is not anything I can use in this case

    Something might have been changed if it was working in the past. Are you able to provide us a sample submission where it shows the old format rather than the new one? You can attach a screenshot by following this guide https://www.jotform.com/help/438-How-to-Post-Screenshots-to-Our-Support-Forum.

    Looking forward for your response.

    As you can see here my pdf document is created from text fields where I have inserted the form answers

    Until a few weeks ago my "afslutForste287"-answer came out correctly, but now it doesn't anymore
