Can I convert a pdf form to a jotform so that I don't have to recreate it?

    I used to use FormsCentral.  I saved the form as an editable pdf but did not transfer over before they shut FormsCentral down.  Am I able to import the pdf into JotForms?

    Thanks!

    Please try it here: https://www.jotform.com/adobe-formscentral-alternative/. You have to scroll to bottom part until you'll see the Import Forms button at the top-right side:

    Clicking this button will open up the import options, choose "PDF Only" and upload the fillable PDF from Adobe FormsCentral:

    The process will take a day or two and you should receive an email about that.

    Thanks

    Just to add, when the form appears in your account, you can only generate it as PDF form. You may need to clone it to generate an online form version:

    Thank you.  The forms central alternative page is not available.  Do you know why?

    So, I have a pdf fillable form but cannot clone it because I first need to import it into jotform.

    I'm sorry, but looks like the import page for Adobe FormsCentral forms is already taken down. In this case, you have to re-create the form in the form builder. If you can send us the PDF, we will take a look at try to create it for you. Please send it to support@jotform.com.

    Thanks
