    Yes it is possible for you to create a PDF version of your form. You can follow this guide for more details: http://www.jotform.com/help/212-How-to-Create-a-PDF-Form 

    It is good to note that the PDF Form generated will not be interactive like the live form on your website. Meaning, conditional logic statements will not be triggered and you will not see animations from widgets or any other field.

    For each thread there should only be one issue to avoid confusion and for us to track suggest resolutions that work and did not work. So for this reason I have created individual threads for your other two issues. You can check for updates on them by clicking the links below.

    Can we have API access to get form data

    We will attend to your other issues soon.

    Thank you

    Hi Vineet,

    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 fillable PDF form and use it offline. 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.
