Remove the image preview on PDF submission

    When my PDF reports for each submission are sent to dropbox, each pdf has both the image link and the actual image. I used to be able to just include the image link (so the pdf was a small file size) but I cannot see how to do this now.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    I believe that's not possible with the multiple file upload tool but there are workarounds.

    1. Use the Drag and Drop Upload Widget. This won't include image preview on PDF submission.

    Or if you want to stay using the multiple file upload field, you can at least reduce the image size in the PDF.

    Here's how to do that:

    1. Custom your PDF, follow this guide:

    While in the PDF editor,

      >Remove the image field

      >Add it again from "Add Field" button 

      >Resize the added image and position it to its label
