    Hi! I am testing out your platform to make sure it is the right solution for me before I sign up for a paid plan. 

    I wish to create an online form (embeddable into our Wordpress site) that exports submissions in pdf form. The form I am creating is an "agreement" type and besides asking for the client's personal information has all our policies and procedures listed.

    When I create a web form, I do not see an option to add the text with our policies into it. The only way I can add that text is when I am creating a regular pdf document that can be printed, but not the web form. Am I missing something? Is it possible to have a web form (that converts submissions in pdf) with long form text on it?

    Please help me figure this out. I can't sign up for your service unless I know I will be able to create the type of forms I need.


    Thank you!

    You may add the text to the online form using Text field. The same text shall be displayed in the PDF document from the PDF editor. You may try creating an online form with text fields and then create the PDF document so that the fields shall be automatically added to the document. If you need to edit the PDF document, you may customize it by following the guide below:
