    Hello there, 

    I'm able to download those files properly (by right clicking the link and selecting Save link as, maybe try resetting your browser's cache or trying a different browser and try again.

    This link might help:

    How do I clear my web browser's cache, cookies, and history?

    Like Cesar, I am able to download the provided PDF files here. It might be a temporary server issue, you can try again this time. The provided workaround above should also help.

    Let us know if you still have difficulties downloading these files. Thanks!

    I have downloaded the files for you. I have no clue why you are unable to download it form your end, maybe the files wasn't yet migrated on the servers where your forms belong to I'm not sure though. Have also you tried clearing your browsers cache before re-downloadnig the files? This might help.

    Anyway, you can get that files here: https://shots.jotform.com/elton/pdf.zip

    If you need anything else, let us know.
