    Image Slider widget causing not to show images in a created fillable PDF Form.

    Asked by mcmendelsohn on March 26, 2015 at 09:44 AM

    First of all Thank you! This is fantastic. I just made my first form and converted it to fillable pdf. as instructed, but my images don't show on the pdf? I have two images on the form, one is my logo and the other one is a guide to help the customer answer a specific question. Is there a trick to this or is it not possible to include images in the pdf?

    I just tried adding an image to the form, and it shows when converted to a fillable PDF:

    However, when I tried it in your form: http://www.jotformpro.com/form/50844084786970

    The images are not shown:

    I will do some further testing, and report this to our second level if needed. We will update you in this thread.

    I am still looking for your issue, found the cause but unfortunately could not find a solution yet. This problem occurs because form is rendered before images fully loaded. Since it is a timing problem i could generate a good one and you can use this until i find a solution. I will update this thread as soon as it is fixed. Here is your PDF form with images:

    I believe the issue has to do with the Image Slider widget located at the bottom of your form:

    Please remove it, and you will see it works:

    I will update our developers about this conflict between the widget and the Fillable PDF Form Creator.

    Thank you for all the troubleshooting here and especially to "Mustafa' for getting me a temporary one. I need to make a series of these all slightly different, so I am looking forward to the resolve.

    Bdavid, I do not have an image slider at the bottom of my form (that I know of or can see). Can you tell me, if it is there and not visible, how can I detect it.

    Thank you again, everyone.

    Yes the widget is there:

    1) Go to the edit mode of your form.

    2) Go at the bottom of the fields.

    3) You swill see a blank space below the Submit button field.

    4) Do a right click on it, and delete the widget.

    5) Save your form and try generating the Fillable PDF form.
