    The pdf files are too large for my record system to accept. My files need to be less then 4mb.

    Hi drrinde,

    Thank you for posting your inquiry. Right now, there is no option available but PDF when you activate the DropBox-JotForm integration. But you can convert these PDF submissions into txt files by the following methods:

    a. Save as Text method - In your Adobe Reader, go to File > Save as Text... to save the file as txt file.

    b. using 3rd party software - there are several PDF to TXT converters available for free. Some even offer batch conversion so that you can convert multiple PDF files at once, therefore saving you time and effort. When I googled for such programs, here's what I got:

    We hope you still find these workarounds helpful. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance. 

    Thank you for using JotForm!
