    Since we can only assist with one question per thread, I have moved your second question to a new thread here: http://www.jotform.com/answers/730100 where we will be assisting you shortly.

    In regards to the first question.

    To 'select' which fields are to be shown on the PDF or not, you should delete the ones that you do not need.

    You can however select or deselect the same from within the Submissions Panel by clicking on the gear wheel on the right and selecting the fields that you wish to have.

    Once you click on it you will see the list with fields and a checkbox to the left of the same, where checked means that they are shown and unchecked means that they are hidden.

    Other than this and deleting or hiding fields manually in PDF Designer, it would not be possible to select which fields are shown and which are not on the PDF of the submission.
