    I also tested with forms shared with me and the PDF file had a name:

    Are you still experiencing this situation? If so, are you experiencing it in the account jamieallan? Are you experiencing this with more than one form?

    Which browser are you using?

    We'll wait for more details to proceed.

    Hi,

     

    Yep still experiencing this situation.

     

    It is on my bosses account Houng Lau

    Every form i have created does this.

     

    I am using firefox.

     

    I Believe you can create  PDF  fillable form one of to ways  the first way is select the f

    orm from my forms then go more then go create pdf. This way i have the issues of Text getting cut off the top as you enter it and drop down boxes that don't work.

     

    The other way i have created the form is  via this link http://www.jotform.com/fillable-pdf-form-creator/

     

    If i do it via this link it all works fine except the back ground color is lost and 1 whole page of text is missing from the informed consent section. This is essential for legal reason.

    This text is in a text box in the original form.

     

    Is there a email address i could email my two fills to, so you could see the issues?

     

    Kind Regards

     

    Jamie
