    How can I modify a preexisting Word or pdf file so that my applicants can fill out the spaces in the form I made in WOrd or pdf?

    Asked by Ipeppard on January 13, 2014 at 06:39 PM

    Please help thank you. I want my applicants to be able to "fill in the blanks" for a document I already cerated outside of JotForm. Can Jotform help me modify my document or can I only create documents here? I tried uploaidng my document but I cannot view it. Please help thank you.

    Unfortunately, you'll have to create the form into our form builder. There is currently no way you can import a PDF or Word file into our form builder and automatically transform it into a fillable form.

    May we know the PDF File? Just want to see the format.
