    greetings we are using a form to collect data from people who make donations at our thrift shops. it is a short form but it takes two pages when you print it out for the customer. 

    is there any way to make the form print out on one sheet of paper instead of two? 

    somewhere to change print settings in the form itself? thanks!

    Are you trying to print out the form itself with your print button or were you looking to print just the submission data to keep it on one page?

    I've checked this on my end with your print button and it's on just 1 page.

    It might be a good idea to check your printer settings and adjust the zoom level. Also, sometimes there is an option to force it to fit one one page on some printers if supported it would show up.

    If you print out a copy of viewing your received submission data that will be much shorter always unless you've enabled the headers and text then it is somewhat longer.

    Greetings! I was able to get the form to print out on one page by changing some of the fields to "short" so they stacked up in columns, reduced the width of the response field for some questions, widened the form by ten pixels from 690 to 700, reduced the space between form fields to 8 pixels from the default setting of 12, reduced the title fonts, changed the multiple choice forms to columns instead of the choices stacked on top of each other, reformatted the disclaimer copy with a smaller font, and used the form itself in a popup rather than the page it is embedded in. THANKS! Your answer got me thinking and I went deeper into the design so I learned a lot about JotForm in the process.
