    Is it possible to create a fillable PDF that can be downloaded to my computer and just used for personal use?

    I want to save it to my computer to be able to use it for my own needs and be able to save it under different names. I also want it to still be a fillable PDF where checkboxes can be checked, and text boxes filled out.

    I do not need to be able to have people submit their answers, I just want to create the form and then use it myself. Is this possible, and if so how?

    Yes, you can create the online form on your Jotform account and then download the form as a fillable PDF.

    I did that, but if I need to send it to someone else are they able to save it and use it on their computer without Jotform? Also for the filled out version to be saved separately?

    Hi there,

    If you are referring to the fillable forms then users will be able to fill out the form without an account but they can only do it with the Adobe PDF reader. They will be able to save the form on their computer as a PDF file.

    Let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

    Thanks
