    Asked on September 28, 2019 at 01:35 AM

    I have successfully converted a PDF Fillable to Jotform, but the mapping seems not synched for some entry. How do I re-map the fillable entry to Jotform

    e.g. I have "Gender" converted into a Text entry. I want to change it to Option entry (Male/Female/Other) but How do i map the PDF fillable Gender entry to the new Jotform Option entry element?

    THank you.

    Unfortunately, manual field mapping is not yet available in the PDF Form Converter but I have escalated this as a feature request. Once this is rolled out in the future, we will inform you here. Here's an example of the escalated feature request.

    As of the moment, it is only the PDF Form Converter that automatically maps the fields after conversion.

    Anyway, I tested your form by filling out the Gender field and it places its data on the PDF. Example:

    If there are fields that are not properly mapped, please try to convert it again. See if this makes a difference.
