    Hi,

    Based from the little information I can derive from your post, it looks like you want to link a pdf file inside your form.

    To accomplish that:

    1.  Add a Free Text (HTML) field in your form.  You can find it under the Power Tools section

    2.  Click on that field inside your form then click the HTML button in the toolbar

    3.  Paste these codes in the HTML Text Area then click OK

    <a target="_blank" href="linktoyourpdffile" text-decoration:underline;">_blank" title="linktitle" rel="follow">Download PDF</a>

    Replace linktoyourpdffile with your pdf file's exact url

    _blank opens a new window for the download, use _self to open the link in the same window

    linktitle refers to the title of the download link. Anything will do.

    Replace Download PDF with the name of the link that appears in the form itself

     

    Let me know how this solution works for you.  Thank you for using Jotform.

    Dear Neil, I have just tried your method of inserting a PDF link and the link is sucessful but I am getting the following appearing on my form...

     

    _blank" title="ELDC AGB's 2012" rel="follow">Allgemeine Geschäftsbedingungen (Bitte hier klicken)

    All that I want to appear is...

    Allgemeine Geschäftsbedingungen (Bitte hier klicken)

     

    Can you tell me where I've gone wrong?

    Thanks, Simone

    Hi Simone,

    Please use this instead:

    <p><a target="_blank" href="http://englishforchildren.com/fileadmin/user_upload/Formulare/ELDC_2012_AGB_s_GER.pdf" rel="nofollow noopener" title="ELDC AGB's 2012" rel="follow"> Allgemeine Gesch&auml;ftsbedingungen (Bitte hier klicken)</a></p>

    and let us know if it works this time or not. 

    Thanks,

    Allan
