    Thank you for contacting us.

    I was able to reproduce the issue with selected Check Box items on fillable PDFs.

    Received items are marked as Yes/Off instead of the actual item name.

    A bug report ticket has been attached to this thread and forwarded to our Development Team.

    We will get back to you as soon as we have any updates.

    I have just tried the PDF submission, and it appears that selected options are properly forwarded now.

    I would like to suggest downloading a fresh form PDF to confirm that the issue is fixed on your side too.

    Hi,

    As Mike mentioned this issue should be fixed. I also tested it just now and seems ok. You need to re-create your PDF form. Thanks for your feedback.

    Regards.
