    Creating a fillable PDF from my form creates a file that throws the error

    Asked by dpeek on March 17, 2015 at 02:38 PM

    I also have this problem. Creating a fillable PDF from  http://form.jotformpro.com/form/50754659699981 produces a file that neither Google Chrome's plugin nor Adobe reader will open - they both claim it is invalid or corrupted.

    I cloned your form to test it and I can confirm that when I tried to open the fillable PDF version, it did indeed throw and error:

    I have forwarded this to our developers so they may have a closer look.  We will let you know in this thread as soon as we have a resolution.  Thank you for your patience.
