    You can import from external files, however, please note that this will not 100% copy your forms especially the styles and other fields that do not match the structure that we have. You can use this app: https://apps.jotform.com/app/spread2jot 

    You should also be able to import the fillable PDF form in your JotForm account, BUT you cannot edit it in our form builder. What happens is that it will allow you to collect data from that fillable PDF form when your users fill it out and click the submit button. You can check this page for more information: http://www.jotform.com/fillable-pdf-form-creator/ 

    I hope that helps.
