    I would like to import a PDF form that could work also as an online form and make them look the same way

    Asked by standon391 on June 04, 2015 at 05:55 PM

    I used the FormCentral Exporter to import my form and data.

    The imported form looks great as seen below

    However, firstly to edit this form using your formbuilder is nearly impossible to get to. There is no easy way to click edit form, I had to go into another non-imported form to then scroll down and hope my imported form was listed at the bottom to edit. Next, this is how the imported form looks:

    This is not a seamless integration to a web based form. I cannot distribute the web based form at all since the questions do not appear in anyway similar to the pdf.

    I would really like to use your services and really like the way the form builder works on the online forms that are created in your service.

    If there is a way that I can get a "pretty" web form and a pdf form from importing a form from formcentral I will be the happiest person.

    Please note that our form builder doesn't work for uploaded PDF form in terms of editing. The purpose of adding the ability to upload PDF forms to our system was to provide you with the ability to capture the submissions in your JotForm account. In order to edit an existing PDF form, you would need to use an external software like Adobe Acrobat and then import the final version.

    You can also convert an online form to a PDF form, but you would need to create it from scratch using the Form Builder.

    I hope this helps on clarifying this matter.

    Let us know if you have further questions.
