    Hello Sean, I did test a copy of the PDF form and found the cause of the issue.

    The cause is in the firs check-box Other" field, it is being evaluated by the PDF JavaScript as a separate required field.

    You can optionally turn off the require parameter generate the PDF then turn it back on for the online form.

    The red fields in the PDF indicate a required field.

    Regarding the second portion of your question, what aspect of the fields appear different for you on clicking submit?
