    Please let me tell you that it is not possible to let your form users to downloade a PDF submission of the completed form before submitting it if that is what you refer to with "without leaving the page".

    However, if what you mean is to allow them to download the PDF in thae "Thank You" page, then it is possible. Just paste this variable {pdf-link} in the Thank You message that way the Link to download the PDF file will appear in the Thank You message and will not need to leave the page:

    I hope this helps. Please inform us if you need further assistance with this query.
