    Exporting PDF

    Asked by Fireconsultingltd on March 08, 2017 at 07:35 AM

    Hello to you. I have a form that is not completed and ready to send copy to the client. 

    Very frustrating as it looks dreadful! More worryingly, the page breaks are ignored and text spills over from one page to the next altogether.

    This is the most important part of my workflow, it has to look good for my client.

    Is JotForm for me? The building and the form filling is great however the stylising of the final output is glitchy?

    Thank you in advance for your help,

    I checked your form and the form (https://form.jotformeu.com/Fireconsultingltd/70515156685359)  seems to be looking fine. The page breaks are displayed properly. Or, do you mean you are creating a fillable PDF of your form and the page break and design of form are not properly displayed? Some of the styles in the web form cannot be really implemented on the PDF form. When I downloaded the fillable PDF of your form, I found some images that are unnecessarily displayed on the PDF.


    I think this is the background image of your form, can you try to remove the background image of your form and see if this will fix the issue? To remove the image, go to Form Designer.

    Then click Remove Image on the Page Image option.


    Do let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thank you, I will try and fix. Can't seem to get away form the fact that the PDF output is disorganised w.r.t. breaks in the data.

    Oh well, back to Adobe possibly. It's a shame I didn't know this right from the start. Learn as you go as they say.

    Thank you again,
