    Create PDF Form not working

    Asked by AVOCreative on March 16, 2016 at 03:25 PM



    The PDF converter is not working. It just says working at the top and nothing ever is created. I've tried many times for a few hours.

    I was able to reproduce the issue as well when I test and checked on your form https://form.jotform.com/53466147217154

    There seems to be a looping script that never completed in the Create PDF form tool.

    I have submitted a report to our higher team support to check on this. We will let you know here once fixed.

    Thank you.

    Hi David no it wasn't fixed, but I found a work around. When the pop up appears asking about including page breaks and including the submit button - Uncheck them both and wait about 2-3 minutes and a PDF will start to download. That is the only way it works for me now. Hope that helps!

    Unfortunately this issue is sill not resolved. Please provide us your form so that we can test it and that we can raise your issue to our developers as well. 

    You can also try with workaround AVOCreative provided. 


    I have cloned your form and tried to create PDF form with workaround you provided, but I was not able to do it. However I am glad to hear that it is working for you with your form.

    Once this issue is resolved we will inform you via this thread.
