    I need to make a new version of an existing form and cloned it but can't edit it?

    Asked by BettyArnold on March 16, 2016 at 02:51 PM

    I do not want to create a new form as it is a registration form and I just need to change dates and add some additional information. I assume if I cloned it I could then make changes on cloned version but there is not option to save those changes on that version? 

    What is the best procedure to take an exisiting form and  make a new form with edits?

    I believe my colleague is following up with your other thread here:

    http://www.jotform.com/answers/796056-We-want-to-make-a-new-form-out-of-the-new-clone

    In any case, clones should be editable.  I checked your form and I was able to make edits without issue.  When you clone a form, it creates a new form that functions like any other form.

    And you were able to save those changes.

    I am making edits on the cloned form, then hit save and when I preview it the changes are not there?
