    I have made edits to my online form, but the PDF form is not syncing with these changes.

    Hi, if the new fields don't show in the PDF Document, please go to the PDF editor:

    And create a new one:

    The new one should be properly updated. Let us know if you need more help.

    Thank you for the quick response. Just a couple follow-up questions:

    When we make changes to the application, do we make them in the online form or the PDF form, or need to adjust both separately?

    Does deleting content in the PDF form also delete content in the online application?

    1)

    Are your questions related to PDF Document of Fillable PDF Form? In the PDF Editor, you can create PDF Documents and Fillable PDF Forms. I checked and you have both.

    How to Create PDF Forms with PDF Editor

    If your question is related to PDF Document, the field that is added to an online form will not be added automatically to PDF Document. You will see the following message in PDF Editor.

    The same message will be shown when a field is deleted from the online form. 

    If your question is related to Fillable PDF Forms, you do not need to adjust them separately. When you add a new field to an online form the field will be added to Fillable PDF Form as well. If the field is deleted from an online form it will be deleted from the Fillable PDF Form as well.
