    Hello,

    I just did a test filling out my form, and then pushed the print button. Only the last page of the form was available to print. What's the good of that, I need the whole form printed.

    The form contains multiple pages.

     

    Many thanks

    Scott.

    Scott,

    We're sorry about this inconvenience. The Print Form button simply sends a JavaScript command to the browser to have the webpage printed. Browsers can only print what's visible, that is why only the last page is printed.

    We have already submitted a feature request to our developers to make the print button display all pages briefly, and have all of them printed by the browser. We will update you in case it gets implemented.

    In the meantime, a workaround is to insert a custom print button on each of your form's pages.

    Here's how it is done:

    1.  Insert a Free Text field in your form

    2.  Click the HTML button in the toolbar and enter this code:

    <a target="_blank" href="javascript:window.print()">Please print this page for your records!</>

     

    Hope this works for you.

    Thank you, At least there is a workaround, but a print button that would print every form page would be so much better. Let's hope the devs can implement it.Scott.
