    Can you clone a .doc or .pdf saved on your computer into a form?

    Asked by jtreece on July 14, 2013 at 02:59 PM

    I have  a contract that I am currently very happy with. I would like to make it easy to electronically fill out/sign and send back; however, I do not want to recreate the whole form. Is it possible to copy/import/clone the form? It is currently saved on my website as a .pdf. 


    Thank you!

    I am afraid that only Form created within JotForm is the kind of forms that can be cloned.

    Form from PDf is not yet available for cloning. However, I still tried cloning http://jennifertreecephotography.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/Portrait-Contract-pdf.pdf but I am sorry but I am unable to do that.

    If you have further questions or inquiry, kindly let us know.

    Thank you for using JotForm.
