    After I configured the fillable fields in my original pdf (which had no fillable fields configured prior) in Jotform, can I use the original pdf with fillable fields independently of Jotform? In other words, is there a way to download my original pdf with the fillable fields and be able to send it to others to fill out the original pdf form without having to enter via Jotform fields interface?

    I checked your form https://www.jotform.com/form/220123750513038 and I noted it was using Smart PDF Forms feature (original PDF).

    Please note that Smart PDF and Fillable PDF Forms feature are exclusive options. Unfortunately the Fillable PDF features will not work on Smart PDF enabled forms.

    To be specific, you cannot use both original PDF and Fillable PDF on the same form. If you notice, in Smart PDF Forms, you can only create submission PDF document together with original PDF -- you cannot create fillable PDF with it. And vice versa, in Fillable PDF, there is no original PDF.

    I hope this help. Please let us know if you need further assistance.
