    Fillable PDF Forms

    Asked by mhowegl on June 08, 2015 at 07:34 PM


    I tried testing a Fillable PDF Form, created a basic template, exported the PDF, downloaded it, opened it and filled it in. However, in OSX Preview, there's no submit button being displayed, so I can't submit the form. I was wondering, if there's a way I could just save the form, then upload it back to JotForm and have the data extracted that way?

    Hi Matt,

    For reference, please check also the user guide -How-to-Create-a-PDF-Form

    Before downloading the PDF Form, make sure to check the option for Submit button also.


    when I test it on your form http://www.jotform.us/form/51587701068156

    it works fine and there is a Submit button


    I am not sure if the issue could probably have to do with your PDF reader also. I am using the Foxit tool on my end. 

    You can also try using the Adobe Reader tool.

    Please let us know if it still did not work.
