    From the video tutorial, then it showed in the field map designer, that it should be possible to view the pdf and the specific output field “PDF Form Field Name”. I can not see this, and I have checked the settings that I have checked the option “Enable field previews in the Field Map Designer”. What can be the reason to why it´s not working?

    I found in the requirements that FormidablePropdf requires this: Formidable Forms plugin, make sure that your server can execute shell commands, and that pdftk is installed on your server.
    You’ll also need to have PHP MB or iconv extensions installed. They are usually installed on web servers.
    If you purchase the plugin, no additional software installation is need.
    PHP version should be at least 5.3.

    I checked with my server vendor and they informed me that all was in order, and that they also have iconv extension, but pdftk is not available at their platform.

    Could this be the reason to this issue? Would I experience other problems also, because my server don´t have this?

    If you do not have PDFtk on your server then simply uncheck the Enable local PDFTK option on the SETTINGS tab and the plugin will use our PDFtk server.

    The preview issue was a bug in the plugin that has been resolved in the latest plugin update this morning. Update your plugin to fix the issue.
