    how can i import a pdf file from my computer?

    Asked by happybirthway on April 30, 2015 at 05:19 PM

    I have a pdf that is already auto-fill ready that I want to edit.  how can I import it?  I uploaded it to the media library of my website so it would have a URL but I got an error message.  I then tried sending to DropBox but got an error message when trying to import it from there as well. 

    suggestions?  thanks.

    Are you using the PDF embedder widget?


    I created a test form and added the pdf url http://happybirthway.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/Online-Client-Agreement.pdf and it's displaying normally:


    Or are you trying to import the PDF form using the option "PDF only" on the  Adobe's Form Central import tool?


    If you are using this option then the PDF can be selected from your computer and after being successfully imported an email will be sent to you:
