    All the features are available on the free version. The main difference between free version and paid plans is related with monthly limits. You can see more details here:

    Regarding your question, on the customize PDF option you are able to rearrange the position and layout of the elements, and you can add extra text, but it is not possible to edit the text of the labels:

    If you need to edit the words on the labels, then you need to do it on the original form, on the form editor:

    From what you have last described, it seems that you are looking to update the information within your submissions.

    If that is correct, you can simply edit a submission by going to the submissions page of your form, and then using the Edit button. Please take a look at the following guide for more details on editing submissions:

    https://www.jotform.com/help/325-How-to-Edit-Submissions-Made-on-Your-Forms

    After re-submitting the form with edited data, you can simply download the PDF file for that submission again - so that it will have all the latest data in the PDF file. If you need further assistance, please let us know.
