    Import a PDF form and turn it into a fillable webform in Jotform

    Asked by hhd319 on February 09, 2015 at 08:27 PM

    I enjoyed FormsCentral's ability to simply upload a PDF form and have it work. Can I still do that? I do not like the idea of having to rebuild a form that is 10 pages long.... 

    Being able to simply upload a premade PDF form will determine the new Form Tool I use to replace FormsCentral.

    Tx, Tami

    UPDATE: We are now able to import PDF forms to JotForm and turn them into Fillable PDF Forms



    Hi Tami,

    Unfortunately, we don't have the feature to import a PDF form and turn it into a fillable web form, but allow me to forward this thread to our developers as a feature request.

    If you have an Adobe Form Central version of this PDF form, then you can simply import it using our import tool (Adobe Form Central to Jotform):


    Thank you!

    Once the fillable PDF form is imported to Jotform, how do you edit the imported form?

    I just attempted to import a pdf..  I have choices to clone an existing form and enter a website address... I don't see a "import pdf' selection.

    I am assuming that you are trying to import a PDF from you MY FORM page:

    You cannot import PDF through here. You can import a PDF form using the link:


    This will enable you to import the PDF form into your account.

    Please let us know if you require further information.

    This is the response I received after uploading the form.... Thank You!

    This process may take a couple of days.

    Since this is a new feature, we are taking longer to ensure the quality of your forms.


    I guess I'll see what get in a few days.
