    Hi, I created a fillable PDF from an imported PDF file. It does not have the same "Download PDF" button that my previous forms have that I created from scratch. Is it not possible to download it as PDF and why not then? Can I at least transfer the same data I've created there to a new Form? Why is it any different from a regular form?

    I assumed that you are referring to the CLIENT DATA FORM correct? It seems that there are no submissions made yet on the form to download a PDF submission. On the PDF Editor, it is only showing the Original PDF form as it will apply the responses from the PDF fillable form.

    You may click on the New PDF tab to create a PDF submission template to download a PDF submission:


    You may also try to create a test submission on your form in live or preview mode then create a PDF document:how-to-customize-pdf-submissions-report

    Kindly provide us with additional information if I have misunderstood your query. Thank you.

    The download PDF button will appear if you have a submission.

    If no submissions, the button you are looking for won't appear.

    Our apologies for the inconvenience.

    Please note that Fillable PDF is different with PDF forms.

    You may only fill the fillable PDF online and download the original PDF with the submission data.
