    Can I create a form on your website and download as a fillable PDF form?

    Asked by Dawn Becker  on May 16, 2014 at 01:41 PM

    I've used your site for other types of forms and I really like it. 

    I've recently created a form in Adobe and it's tedious and time consuming to make changes.

    I would like to create a form on your site and have the capabilities to download the form as a PDF.

    Can you do this?

    The form I'm working on is not something you fill out usually in one session.

    Research is required so having it online, we would need to save and come back to it without loosing data.

    If your site doesn't allow for this, do you have any suggestions on who we could use?

    Hi,

    What you need is completely achievable. To download the PDF file of your form please follow these steps:

    1. While in MY FORMS page select the desired form.

    2. Then, click on the More button in the right side.

    3. There click on Create PDF Form option and that's it. 

    See this animation to know how to do it:

     

    In case that you wish to allow your form users to fill it out online, you could enable the Autofill/Autosave form entries function. That way your form users can stop completing the form, keep their data/info saved and continue filling it out later. Here is the guide to know how to enable such feature:

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

    Thanks

    @Dawn

    Great news!

    We are very pleased to inform you that we have just released a Fillable PDF Form Creator. You can now export your forms into a completely fillable PDF form and use it offline. It supports most of the standard fields including matrix tables and drop downs. With the PDF, you can save the pdf locally or submit it on the PDF by clicking the submit button. It works similarly when you submit your web form.

    Please try it and let us know your feedback.

    Cheers!
