    You are able to upload PDF documents and convert them to forms only if they are fillable PDFs. This means they can not contain plain text, but they need to have fillable fields.

    To see how you can upload PDFs please use the following link:

    If you need any assistance please let us know.

    Please note that when you upload your PDF, Jotform may not entirely copy all the layouts and styling from your original PDF, and some fields may not be detected as well. Unfortunately, if this happens, you can adjust the field connections manually, and try to add custom CSS coding to the Online Form.

    You can also download the submissions data in the original PDF Layout.
