You can only embed the HTML form format not the PDF. The PDF form needs to be filled out with Adobe Reader, Adobe Acrobat or Acrobat Mobile and can't be embedded on a website.
I don't think that help me here, maybe I misused my words. I've already uploaded the fillable PDF file that I created on Adobe XI pro into forms central. It works fine but I can only download/save the pdf file from Form Central. It dosen't give me the options to embed or copy the link from the distrobution tab. I'm trying to but the form from Adobe Form Central onto my website so that I my agents can click on it from my website and fill it out.

I just tested this functionality using my account. Correct me if I'm wrong, but you are uploading/importing a pre-made form from Acrobat Pro to Adobe FormsCentral.
If this is the case, you will not get the copy link, etc, as options, as those options are only allowed on HTML forms that are made directly from the FormsCentral website. The functions you are looking for are strictly reserved for HTML forms. Create a web form from FormsCentral and you will see what I am referring to. The help text even alludes to it as well.
In short: In order to get those functions, you will have to recreate the form on FormsCentral, not import from Acrobat Pro.
This Is very disapointing are you sure that this is the only way you can link the form to your website. I found the program useful because we already have so many fillable PDF form created. I did download the file and link the file into a download button on my site and it worked but it only works with Safari. No Firefox, Chrome, Explorer. Any Advise for a workaround...Help!!
Unfortunately, yes. I feel your pain on this. It was disappointment when I started developing forms via FormsCentral as well. I beat my head against the wall for 3 days trying to figure it out, and eventually came to the conclusion above.
The only workaround I know of is to recreate the forms on FormsCentral as HTML forms. (I am currently tasked with this for all of the forms for our city, which is why I know that is the case, I'm essentially having to rebuild all of our forms from scratch - IT Dept here)
I just don't understand why it works when open it from my website in Safari? and no other browsers?
Based on your answer above, it sounds like you uploaded the file to your website, as opposed to the function being available from formscentral.
If you have downloaded the file from Acrobat Pro then uploaded it to a website and had the upload pinned to a download button, then that is going to be a function of your website. Your workaround has nothing to do with formscentral itself.
You essentially uploaded the file to your website, then made it a downloadable file. The reason it is opening in your browser is because you have the Adobe Reader/Acrobat plug-in for your browser. It's not actually "embedded". If you uninstalled all of your adobe plug-ins, then it would open Reader or Acrobat, not in the browser. The reason it only opens in Safari is likely due to the fact that you only have the Adobe Reader/Acrobat plug-in enabled for Safari, and it is disabled for the other browsers.
I hope this makes sense!
Is there a way to streamline this with Adobe Echo Signiture so that I can get my data and my signiture data to enter into the form central? I loose the signitures when I download the file and submit hit submit.
