    PDF Form Creation: headers and some text are not appearing and fields overlapping on PDF form version.

    Asked by NWF_website on September 10, 2016 at 04:29 PM

    My form is not being exported correctly. My headers and my text are not appearing on my PDF form. I've exported several times and cannot get the text or headers to appear. How can I get them to export on my form?

    I cloned your form and exported a PDF, but I didn't experience any issue with showing text and headings as you see below:

    If you're still experiencing this issue please give us more details or a screenshot so we can investigate further.

    Thank you.

    I got it to download, but I'm still getting issues. Please see the screenshots. Some questions do not appear next to text boxes. Some text is not in focus. Some fields are black and I can't see what I type.

    Thanks for the screenshots, I tried exporting your form as PDF, but it was not even possible, it just kept spinning: https://www.jotform.com/help/212-How-to-create-a-PDF-form
