Demo Installation Video

NOTE: The plugin uses PDFTK to fill in PDF files. This means that your server has to have PHP shell commands enabled. If your server does not have pdftk installed, you can still use the plugin to generate 1 PDF file for 1 Formidable form.

If you purchase the plugin using our website, you do not need to install pdftk or to enable shell commands on your server. You'll use our API according to the Terms of Service.

Enter the activation code on the plugin options page.
