    Upload a PDF-document from my computer

    Asked by Jakob Olsen  on September 08, 2014 at 10:01 AM


    I have a PDF-document, that I would like to make into a form. But I don't see that I can upload my own PDF document.

    Hello Jakob,

    I am not sure if I have understood your question correctly.

    Do you want to embed a PDF document in your form or you want to convert your PDF document into a form?

    If want to embed a PDF document in your form: It is possible to achieve your requirement. You need to actually add "PDF Embedder" widget in your form and provide the PDF file URL. It will display the PDF document in your form. Please be noted that first you will have to upload your PDF file in your own server and then use the PDF file URL in the widget.

    If you want to convert your PDF document into a form: Unfortunately, it is not possible to import or convert a PDF document into a form. We do not have such feature and only a HTML form can be imported. You will have to build your form from scratch.

    Hope this answers your questions.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
