    Activating the imported (from FormCentral) PDF Form

    Asked by ggaul2001 on September 14, 2015 at 09:22 AM

    I imported my .pdf form from FormCentral before it expired. They are listed in "My Forms" How do I "activate" them now so I can add a submit button and use them?

    Hi ggaul2001,

    You would need to clone the PDF form that has been added to your account and then edit the cloned form to add your submit button.

    I hope this helps, please inform us if you need further assistance.

    Thank you

    Thanks for the response.
    The "cloned" form has lost all of its formatting. I would basically have to recreate the entire form in order to be able to use it...... So moving the forms to JotForm was a waste of time, unless you want to do it ....let me know

    For Adobe FC PDF forms, you will only get them as a PDF in Jotform. For Adobe FC web forms, you will also have them as a web form in Jotform. This is how the import process works.

    Unfortunately, cloning the PDF won't work because you'll only lose all the formatting. It's either you will publish it as a fillable PDF or re-create it to have a web form version.
