    Can I do interactive and responsive forms?

    Asked by harrigad on March 26, 2015 at 12:36 PM

    I need form fields to expand as necessary, not just with a scroll bar but expand so that the printed version shows all text and the remaining fields drop in response to the field above expanding.

    I could do this with Adobe LiveCycle Designer, but can I do this with JotForm?

    Could you please give us a bit more details in regards to this? Is there any sample of what you are after that we can take a look at so that we can better understand what you are after?

    I am most interested in the fillable PDF form creator. My forms need fields that expand with text.  For example:

    If someone types volumes in any field, I need the rest to drop down accordingly so every bit of text is viewable and printable.

    The picture did not come through, please follow these instructions.

    If you wish to have a form with conditions, then you do not need a PDF form, you just need to build the web form and apply the conditions, then share the link with your users and embed it.
