    Can I import my PDF form to JotForm

    Asked by TexasAgriculture on May 22, 2015 at 10:49 AM

    I created this long, 9-page application/contract in InDesign (and exported into PDF form) that I'd like to import into JotForm to make a fill-able form. Is this possible?


    I'd prefer not to start from scratch and drop in every single bit of text. Is there a way to import an existing PDF and create the form that way?

    Unfortunately, the only PDF's we can import to JotForm at this time are the fillable PDF's from Adobe Forms Central.  You can import them using our import tool located here:


    If it is not an Adobe PDF, you can also try our import App:


    Though this one is not as consistent and occasionally will not work with certain files.

    If you have any further questions, let us know and we will be happy to help.
