    Once you submit the form, the page goes away and you have a blank "thanks for submitting"

     

    I want the person to be able to print the form for their reference and have a copy.  So I inserted (with your help) a print button prior to the submit button. The problem is that to often I get a message saying the jot form can't print because the form has closed.  see the screen shot.

     

    How can I make sure the form remains available to print before submission?

    Thanks

    You should put some text (e.g. "https://www.jotform.com/pdf-submission/{id}"), select that text and then you will be able to use the Link button.

    They other ways is just to copy/paste the following link(s), using your browser:

    https://www.jotform.com/pdf-submission/{id}

    https://www.jotform.com/form.php?formID=20280720881&sid={id}&mode=edit

    Copying formatted text option is working in most of browsers.

    If something is not clear, please let us know.
