    Can we export to PDF including the form text?

    Asked by thiningsoftware on May 21, 2015 at 03:54 AM

    We're looking at JotForm as a replacement for Adobe Forms. We've imported our forms and everything works great except for a little PDF issue.


    Once the person files out our form, we then used to save it as a PDF and email it to them as a confirmation. However, since our form includes some instructions, we need all of the content to be included on the PDF, not just the responses.

    Is that possible?

    This does not work for multi page forms.  I followed the instructions above and only the material up to the first page break was exported to PDF.

    Extremely unsatisfactory
