    Changing cell height in email alerts

    Asked by paws19 on November 07, 2012 at 09:21 AM

    Hi,

    I would like to shrink the height of my cells on my email alerts so that when I view or print my pdf form, it will only be one page. Rite now one of my forms has just 3 lines on page 2.

    It looks like it is possible to do if I click on the "cell property icon" in the email alerts, however I dont know what size they are by default so that I can use a lesser number to use.

    There are also some other questions it asks that I wouldn't know how to answer.

    Thanks for any help,

    Laurie

    Hello Laurie.  Can you tell us which one of your forms is it that you're having this issue?

    Thanks.

    It isn't really an issue. I am just trying to build my forms so that once I receive a submission and view it in pdf it will fit on one page. This way I can print it out on one page. The one form I need al the questions to be in the form. The form in pdf  3 lines on page 2. I am thinking if I can make the table height less on each column, I just might beable to get the pdf form to fit on one page. All my forms fit on 1 page except this one, because I have more questions on it. I am just trying to customize the email alert table a bit but I need to know the default height of the cells in the table.

    Hi there!

    You can edit the height  and size of the text of your e-mail via HTML.

    There is an HTML button that allows you to do this.  I have created a clone and sent you a test submission with minimal changes to the HTML.  please take a look at it and let me know if that helped!

    I dont see your clone. I made a clone of it yesterday and put it in a backup folder, but I dont see one today. Could you take a snapshot of the html window and circle the number you changed and let me know what it was before so If I need to change it some, I wont need to keep asking you to do it for me. Well, hopefully!

    Thanks,

    Laurie

    P.S. I see your submission it went to a different form. The one I am working on is the reservation form.

    Hi there

    You will see that your HTML code has the following tags

    <table> (start of a table)

    <tr> (start of a row)

    <td><t/d> 

    </tr> (end of a row)

    </table> (end of a table)

    You can define the height of the rows <tr height="20">

    This is a tidious procedure as you would have to look for all the starting <tr> tags.  However, you can also choose to send your notification in Text mode.  There you simply move the elements around to suit the look you want.

    Hope that helps!
