    are you referring to this?

    Here's the option for that

    This appears after you click the Create PDF option from the MyForms page.

    But if you're referring to the buttons exactly, I would like to apologize, page break buttons are really not included when the form is converted to Fillable PDF. One of our developers, on this thread, Will-we-be-able-to-insert-manual-page-breaks-in-fillable-pdf-forms, states that we will not support page breaks in PDF forms because as far as we know it is not possible with current PDF specifications.

    Thank you.

    Yes but the page break doesn't match the ones I put for online.

    I'm sorry, but there is currently no way you can have the same design of the page break from the form into the fillable PDF. Checking the "Include page breaks" option in the pdf creator will only show you a page as per my colleague screenshot.

    If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us again.
