I cloned your form and tried to create a fillable PDF. I was able to create a Fillable PDF of the clone, although I did wait for 5 minutes before I was able to save the file.
Please try on your end to see if the fillable pdf will be created after some time. You can also check out this article for more information about Fillable PDFs: Fillable PDF - Everything you need to know about JotForm Fillable PDF Creator

Trying to use fillable pdf in an offline situation
Can you let me know if there is a better way please
My form is a modification of a jotform template
I have created a fillable pdf
In order to use it I have placed it in Dropbox in order to get it on my iPad

The downsides of this method:
- You cannot clear the cache of your browser (as all the info is saved on your browser)
- You cannot change device (as stated before)

- Only one person per device/browser (as the information is going to be saved on the browser you cannot have multiple people filling in and "saving" the form )
You can test the demo form:
Let us know if we can assist you further.
One important thing I forgot to mention is that for this to work the form needs to be loaded while still online.
