    adding a PDF document to the body of a form

    Asked by PinkIguana on November 03, 2014 at 03:00 PM


    I have a form that I want to add a PDF file into (just as if I was inserting an image). Is this possible? I read this http://www.jotform.com/help/153-How-to-Display-a-PDF-Document-On-Your-Form and followed the instructions. But it's not working. What am I missing?

    The method described in the user guide  is a bit obsolete now.

    What I suggest you instead use is the new PDF Embedder Widget to accomplish the same feature as described on the user guide. 

    Check the widget here http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/pdf_embedder


    Just add the PDF Embedded Widget in your form from Widgets group and follow the configuration wizard.


    Hope this help. Inform us if you need further assistance.

    Also, will the person viewing the survey be allowed to print the PDF?
