How to Update the PDF Through Smart PDF Forms?

October 20, 2021

Have you found a typo or other error in your PDF? Or does your PDF have old headings? Do you simply want to replace the current PDF with a newer version? Jotform Smart PDF Forms allows you to import a new file and replace your existing PDF while keeping the fields mapped to your online form.

To do this, edit your current form through Jotform Smart PDF Forms.

Go to the My Forms page. Click Edit next to the form associated with the PDF you want to replace.


Next, go to the Upload tab in Jotform Smart PDF Forms, and click the Update PDF text.


Click the Update this PDF file button.


Select your file, and that’s it! You should see the new PDF right away.

Please keep in mind the limit of 25 pages. If your new PDF file exceeds this limit, the import will not proceed.

As mentioned above, the form field connections will remain intact. Only the original PDF is being replaced in the background.

For example, this is the original PDF:


This is the new document with the updated heading:
