    Do the PDF fillable and printed forms look the same, and with all the information visible?

    Asked by Pamela Irby  on May 19, 2015 at 10:39 AM

    Currently, with Adobe Forms Central, I can download all submissions as a PDF and print.  I can also allow clients to print a blank form, fill it out manually and fax, email or mail it to me.  Both the printed form and the downloadable form look the same in appearance.  Is this possible with JotForm?

    Hello Pamela

    You can download the form submissions in PDF format but they have a simpler look that of the original form:

    Jotform is an online form creator, which means that mainly our editor is designed to create forms that will be available and filled in online. But recently we developed some tools that allows your online forms to be converted to PDF.

    You can create a fillable PDF version of the online form, which can be saved, printed or submitted online. To create a a fillable PDF  please go to My Forms > select the form > More >  Create PDF: 

    Is is also possible to import your Adobe PDF fillable forms:

    The printed and downloadable form will look  the same, they can just differ a little from the online original version.
