    Hi guys,

    Maybe I am confused here — can I use this plugin to collect data from a webform and populate fields on an existing fillable PDF? Or does this plugin only allow me to create PDF from scratch?

    I am trying to use an existing fillable PDF but whenI upload to make a field map I get an error that says this:

    Error while saving layout: Table ‘ckmvtdqrcu.wp_12_fpropdf_layouts’ doesn’t exist

    Query was: INSERT INTO wp_12_fpropdf_layouts (name, file, visible, form, data, dname, created_at, formats, add_att, passwd, lang, add_att_ids, default_format, name_email, restrict_role, restrict_user) VALUES (‘ETECH’, ‘MOTOR-ETECH-2018 03 29 for Autorepair site (1).pdf’, 0, 3, ‘a:1:{i:0;a:3:{i:0;s:1:\”1\”;i:1;s:1:\”1\”;i:2;s:0:\”\”;}}’, 0, NOW(), ‘a:1:{i:0;a:7:{i:0;s:1:\”1\”;i:1;s:0:\”\”;i:2;s:0:\”\”;i:3;s:0:\”\”;i:4;s:0:\”\”;i:5;s:0:\”\”;i:6;s:0:\”\”;}}’, ‘1’, ”, ‘0’, ‘all’, ‘pdf’, ”, ”, ”)

    What am I doing wrong? Please let me know if you can help!

    – YES

    Or does this plugin only allow me to create PDF from scratch?
    – NO, PRO2PDF does NOT create PDFs (Our new plugin, E2Pdf does create PDF)

    I am trying to use an existing fillable PDF but whenI upload to make a field map I get an error that says this:
    – If possible, send the PDF to us using this form for further review. If not possible, then reply with which program was used to create the PDF Form Fields and what is the full filename of the PDF?

    We were able to upload the PDF and created this merge with no issues.
    . Have you successfully setup any other Field Map Layouts on the same installation?
    – If no – did you follow the demo video?

    At what step of the process are you experiencing the error? Complete this form if you think we should login and take a look.

    Hi guys, responded directly via email but it bounced back. I believe I am doing everything according to the demo video. I thought it might be due to the fact that the form was not yet filled, but I added an entry and still am unable to get the plugin to recognize the pdf for mapping. when I click the “create field map” button i get the same error. am i doing something wrong? video here:
