    We would like to apologize for any inconvenience this is causing you. Can you help us by further explaining to us which part of your form is not aligned or is duplicated or double printed, please?

    We will wait for your response.

    The PDF version is doubling the words in the questions.  When I save it as a PDF, this is when the doubling happens.

    We appreciate you reporting this to us. I was able to reproduce the issue you are having with a clone version of your form. It seems that this only happens with the field label of a checkbox field. I was also able to reproduce the issue on a newly created form and I have escalated this to our developers so they can have a closer look. Although we cannot provide you a timeframe to when this will be fixed, please be assured that if there are any updates, we will notify you in this thread right away.

    We are sorry for this inconvenience. 

    There might have been so many things which cause this problem. Mainly, if there is any injected CSS or if there is any field shrinked or if the form height does not fit the A4 paper size, the PDF form could have this problem. So, we strongly suggest you to clone your form to make following changes on your form in order to get a PDF without problem. 

    1. Clone your form

    2. Delete your css if you have injected any.

    3. Unshrink field if you have already shrinked.

    4. Add page break to your form to fit it to A4 paper size. If you have already page break, please try to change page break position. 

    Please also note that when you add page break to your form or change position of them, there is still a possibility that the same problem will happen again. So, please try several times to get the best fit. Since, the code to download form as PDF seems have conflict if any of the above thinks exist.
