    If you embed a PDF with a direct iFrame method, it should not allow any pop-up options. Please see the next guide.

    How to Display a PDF Document On Your Form

    Note, that most of the browser PDF viewers provide a Save/Download option.

    If you are referring to something else, please provide us with more information on your inquiry.

    Thank you. I saw that yesterday. I researched this for hours before asking. Best I could do was embed as iframe with toolbar="0" but it's not displaying correctly. If it's not possible to disable the "pop-out" option, please let me know.

    Seems like you are using an iFrame code to embed the PDF file in your form, although this could work I would suggest you to use our iFrame widget, it could work as well.

    On the Form Builder you only should add the widget to your form: 

    Then you only need to paste the URL where is stored your PDF file: 

    Here is a sample form that I made to show you how it works: https://form.jotform.com/60838735487975.

    Please, also share us the link to your form so we will take a look and try to figure out why it is showing a pop-up option.
