    Hi, to add the PDF document on your form simply:

    1) Add at Text field in your form

    2) Click on Edit HTML

    3) Add this code:

    <p><iframe src="URL of the page where the PDF is located" style="width: 100%; height: 500px; border: none;" frameborder="0"></iframe></p>

    (On the URL you need to place to your own direct PDF Link uploaded to your host or any file sharing sites such as Dropbox or Google Drive)

    It should look like this:
