Frequently Asked Questions
- How does it work?
The blank PDF is a form with one giant rich-text editing field. The form submits data using the FDF format to our server where it is merged with a copy of the blank PDF using the incredibly useful pdftk. The finished PDF is then sent to you.
- Can I convert a Word document to PDF?
No, not directly, at least not yet.
- Can I encrypt/restrict the PDF?
Yes, if you download pdftk you can encrypt and restrict what users can do with the PDF.
- Can I make a multi-page PDF?
Yes, but you'll need to generate individual PDF pages using the Blank PDF and merge them using pdftk.
- Did you make pdftk?
No, we're just really big fans of it.
- How do I know you're not spying on me?
You don't, but we're not. When you submit your PDF data, it's only stored on the server long enough to generate your PDF.
- I am interested in implementing PDF forms, can you help?
Sure! Whether you're interested in generating complete PDFs with user data, or simply collecting submissions for another purpose, we can help. Just contact us at with details on what you're looking for.
