You can edit the PDF Form by toggling off the Preview PDF option in the upper-right.

Here, you can add new elements by dragging items from the left sidebar. We have the Basic (PDF) Elements and Fields (form elements).

Once you are done building the PDF form, you can click the Download button in the upper-right corner of the window to quickly get the PDF form.
