    Rating scale doesn't appier on PDF version

    Asked by vlinderdreef on January 30, 2017 at 03:06 AM


    We are making an employee evaluation form for evaluation and an self evaluation of our employees.
    But we want to be able to print an unfield form in pdf.
    But the option "beoordelingsschaal" (ratingscale) won't appear correctly on a pdf..

    Is it possible to correct this default?

    From the screenshot you sent us, I'm assuming you're creating a PDF Form.

    Sadly, that's just how it works by default and was designed that way. This is mainly because PDF forms are quite limited to begin with so the Scale Rating falls back to a traditional Textbox field instead.

    We mentioned this in our guide about Fillable PDF Forms:

    I strongly urge you to review the guide I'm citing below, to better understand which fields will work (or not) on PDF Forms.
