    Asked on December 23, 2011 at 02:46 PM

    i want to use the uea form on my website for memebers to fill out as part of the registration.does does it need to be in a pdf version to hide the multiple fields. right now as an example,the 15 possibel jobs that could be used by a job seeker all show up.they should be hidden.

    next, the actual document does not appear,only  code.

    also, my free account gives me 100 uses of the form.i expect many more than 100 members . will each memebr constitute a "use"? can the form be downloaded to my desk top.

    i have provided the page url.the form is near the bottom of the page under jotform uea.thank you

    Thank you for contacting us.

    To get the PDF version of you form, you can Right click on your from and then use the Create PDF Form option.

    However, your inquiry is not completely clear for me. What fields/options do you want to hide, and why do you need to do it? What do you mean about the actual document?

    We do have a limit, it is 100 submissions per month for free accounts. It means that your form(s) all together can be submitted up to 100 times per month. Currently, you have used only 1 submission, and counter resets on the 1 day of each month. You can download the form source code, and PDF version of your form.

    We are looking forward to hearing from you.

    Could you first please try to use the following URL instead: http://www.jotform.com/form/13181759265 and let us know if it will make a difference?

    Iframe embed code type is a type of embed code which is usually used to troubleshoot and resolve conflicting codes, or if you don't want your website properties like CSS to interfere with your JotForm forms.

    Please update us with your observations. Happy Holidays from JotForm!

    Do you want to remove some options from the form or hide the options and show them in some conditions only?

    Should you have further questions on this matter, kindly open a new thread so that we won't veer away from the original topic of this one, which is about converting a form to PDF file.

    Thanks a lot for your cooperation.

    I have created a pdf version of my form, however, I am not able to edit the fields (fill in the form). Does creating a pdf from create a non-fillable form? Also, will the submit button work for the pdf version as it does for the on-line version?
