    I was able to replicate your issue. This happen because not all widgets are supported here in the Fillable PDF forms.

    The "Form Tabs" widget is causing the submit button to disappear in the PDF. Delete the widget and try it again, the submit button should show up.

    Please check this guide about the Fillable PDF Creator: http://www.jotform.com/help/312-Fillable-PDF-Everything-you-need-to-know-about-JotForm-Fillable-PDF-Creator

    I have removed the widget and the submit button is back on the PDF, but I still have errors.


    1) Error message about missing fields

    2) the page break is messing up everything

    3) part of the text from the form are missing

    I also was able to see problems when I converted your jotform http://form.jotform.us/form/51510814436146 to Fillable PDF Form

    As mentioned already on the user guide


    some fields and widgets will not work yet on the PDF Form version of the form.

    Like in your forms, the Configurable List widget and signature widget will not work.

    I can only suggest minimizing the content of the form to regular fields if you want to convert it to the working Fillable PDF form.


    Let us know if you need further clarification on this.
