Download underlying PDFs from document templates

Sometimes you just need the original PDF file used to create a document template. Rather than scouring the internet or your device for the file, you can easily download the PDF from the document template’s settings. This is especially helpful if you no longer have access to the original file.

Easily download the original PDF files that underlie your document templates from the template settings by following the steps below.

  1. Navigate to your desired template
  2. Click the Settings icon in the top right corner
  3. Select Download PDF from the dropdown menu Download PDF is the third option in the setting dropdown menu


  • Only original underlying PDF files can be downloaded.
  • Any changes made through Anvil’s document template editor are not included in the downloaded copy of the original PDF file.
  • If your PDF was not originally fillable, then the downloaded copy also will not be fillable.
