    So in order to avoid basic misunderstanding, am I right in understanding that I need third party software to create a fillable pdf in the first place (in order to produce layouts that are beyond the ability of the Jotform PDF Editor tool)? And secondly, can I add additional fields to my form which are over and above what are on my Smart PDF form? (I don't want all my form fields on the pdf - some only need to be in the csv.) And third, can I re-arrange the layout of the form that is created without affecting the layout of the pdf that is attached to the submission email? Thanks.

    No you only need to upload your pdf.

    in order to produce layouts that are beyond the ability of the Jotform PDF Editor tool?

    No, it's your own pdf.

    can I add additional fields to my form which are over and above what are on my Smart PDF form?

    Yes.

    can I re-arrange the layout of the form that is created without affecting the layout of the pdf that is attached to the submission email?

    Yes.
