    How to create fillable PDF form and its limitations?

    Asked by topspot on February 17, 2016 at 04:39 PM

    Got your email about this feature, and watched your video, but cannot find how to "GET" there to select it...

    Can I use a form I have already created or create a custom one for the fillable pdf?

    Are there any features that won't carry over to the pdf version?  (e.g. page toggle or custom logic?)


    thanks... hope you can help
