    How can I keep a Widget in a pdf form ?

    Asked by salamancasurvey on September 26, 2016 at 01:03 PM

    Dear Staff,


    Hello, I need some help. I'm creating a form using some widgets. For example, the calculation Widget for calculating Body Mass Index. I have weight, height, and I create te calculation that appears in my On-line form, but when I transform the form in a PDF the calculation does not appear. 

    Can I fix that? Or is not possible?


    Kind Regards,

    Unfortunately, the calculation functionality and form widgets are not supported in our fillable PDFs.

    The PDF format is quite different from web standards, so it does have some limits, more information is available on the next guide.
