    There are several form submission we would like to print or save as pdf from the website. Is there a way to do this for all submissions instead of one at a time - one by one?

    Hi layafl,

    Yes, but you need to enable the DropBox - JotForm integration in order to receive a PDF copy of all  of your submissions from your DropBox account. 

    If you prefer not to use DropBox for now, you can still save PDF copies of your submissions albeit manually and one at a time. Just go to your form's submissions page and click the Get PDF button located in the toolbar:

    We hope you find this information helpful. Thank you and enjoy using JotForm!

    This can only be used for forms that have been submitted. There are times when clients request that I bring a printed copy of a blank form with me. How can this be done in a print-friendly format?

    Hi Pawsibilities,

    Good input you have there. While there is not an existing way to generate a printer-frierndly format of your blank form, one alternative that I can think of is to use the built in print function of your web browser. It is usually initiated by pressing Ctrl-P.

    If you're leaning more towards a PDF solution, another suggestion that I would like to share with you is the use of a PDF printer driver like PDF995. You can download and install this free third party software at http://pdf995.com/download.html. It allows you to print a PDF copy of the form as if you're printing into a printer (using the Print feature of your web browser or Ctrl-P) which means you can print in portrait or landscape. Please click here for a blank sample PDF version of a file printed using PDF995.

    You can also use the "Create PDF Form" option - Go to your My Forms page and right click on the form that you want to print, then select "Create PDF Form"

    Kindly try and let us know if any of these three workarounds will address your needs. Thank you for using JotForm!

    I saw the blank PDF example you linked above and like the layout. Is there a way to have that look with a completed form? I tried GET PDF, and the format is not the best. My form is a medical patient form and I'd like to be able to print it out for patient to sign and have it look like an actual form instead of just a printed version of the form fields. Any suggestions?

    You can do the same for completed forms by editing the submission through the submissions page, then printing from within that edit page. Make sure that you have the PDF Printer driver installed.

    1.  Go to your form's submissions page
    2.  Click the submission you want to create a pdf of
    3.  Click the Edit button

    4.  Click the Print Form button


    5.  Print using the PDF995 printer driver

    Here is a sample PDF of a completed form.

    Thanks Neil, your solution fit the bill. :)  Would I be pushing it to ask if there's a way to format the printed pages to not cut off fields in the middle? :)   I know that the conversion from web form to print is not an exact science.

    Scratch that last question...it's only two fields that get cut off and i think if i redesign the questions it will solve the problem.  I suppose the extras lines and such appearing on the printed page are more a function of translation hiccups between the jotform and the printer driver eh?

    It has more to do with the browser than the pdf printer driver. Even if you print on real paper, the results would still be the same. Sorry but I do not think it can be helped on JotForm's end.

    Of course.you can refer to the following code to save pdf:

    public static string FolderName = "c:/";
    private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
    string fileName = FolderName + "Sample.pdf";
    string fileNameAdd = FolderName + "New.pdf";

    REDocument doc = REFile.OpenDocumentFile(fileName, new PDFDecoder());//use PDFDecoder open a pdf file
    int pageCount = doc.GetPageCount();//get pdf's page count
    Debug.WriteLine("Page Count: " + pageCount);

    BasePage newPage = doc.CreateEmptyPage();//create a new page by REDocument

    doc.AddPage(newPage, 2);//add a new page to REDocument

    pageCount = doc.GetPageCount();//get new pdf's page count
    Debug.WriteLine("Page Count: " + pageCount);

    REFile.SaveDocumentFile(doc, fileNameAdd, new PDFEncoder());//save new pdf
    }
