    Dear Jotform support,

    I wanted to see how I could have the original form automatically PDFd and  then sent to me via email. I know there is a way to get the PDF sent to you, but this does not look like the filled-out form.

    I want to see how to have the PDF look just like the actual form, but with it filled out.

    Do you have any advice you could give?

    That's not exactly what I was looking for. I figured out how to get a PDF sent to me, but the PDF looks so different than the actual form. I wanted to see how the PDF can look exactly like the form, but with the blank spaces filled in with their answers.

    Does that make sense?

    In that case, you can convert your form to a fillable PDF form.  

    You can see the Create PDF option under the More button on your My Forms list page 


    Click on the Create PDF Form option and it will launch the new PDF editor tool.
