    Can i import pdf after making the form?


    Actually i forgot to import the pdf before making form. Now, i want to integrate them with pdf to get results printed?


    Is there any way to integrate them to pdf now?


    Or if not possible then any way to clone the form to import pdf form with all logics in that.


    I have spent a lot of time to make my form. Now, i want to integrate them with pdf? Any solution will be appreciated. Please help. Me otherwise i have to make all the effort again.


    Thanks

    Let me try to understand the situation.

    You have created an online form in your Jotform account. Now you have a PDF into which you want data to be entered and you want to import this PDF into JotForm. The form that you already created needs to be mapped to this imported PDF. Is that correct?

    If yes, I'm afraid it won't work that way since when you import a PDF form, it is automatically taken to the Smart PDF forms builder. If the imported PDF form is a fillable one, then online form fields are automatically created and mapped to the fields on your original imported PDF.

    This is how the PDF import process works: https://www.jotform.com/help/548-how-can-i-import-my-own-pdf-with-smart-pdf-forms

    Let us know if you have any further questions.

    Thanks for immediate reply.


    Yes, you understand my problem clearly. So, no way to import pdf into my existing jotform?


    If not please can you create a request to developer so that this feature may added because sometime when we dont have pdf then we really bother about the mapped feature and create online jotform simply and when later we have one then we are trying to mapped pdf to an existing jotform.


    Please create requests so that this feature will also available along with the other amazing features in future

    Thats mean i have to again create my form.

    Thanks
