    Dear Support,

    When I save the submitted form in new pdf editor, it only shows the results from the submitted form. It doesn't show the entire table. In the old pdf editor, it shows the entire table.

    It also keeps the paragraph format and long text field is continuous on the same page.

    In the new pdf editor, it only shows the answers from the table.

    There are also many white spaces between each question and doesn't maintain the paragraph format such as bullet points, bold, font size, etc.

    The long text filed is created on a new page in a pdf file instead of continuing from the last line from the bullet points. Is there a way I can modify the pdf file in new pdf editor to include the entire table, create fewer spaces in between paragraph, and continuous fields? Thanks.

    Hello baihs,

    We have implemented a new display option for matrixes to see them similar to old style. You can change its display to grid view via matrix field settings under "Table" section.

    We are still working on the empty space issues of default pdf generation and will be notifying you via this thread as soon as problems fixed.

    Thank you for working on this issue. You guys are amazing. Can you add a divider line between each column? It's kind of confusing without the borders. I also noticed the questions' column width was adjusted to the same as the answers column width.

    It's easier to read the matrix table from the old pdf editor. The checkmarks are clearer, and the format is almost the same as the online form.

    Hi, 

    >>> The long text filed is created on a new page in a pdf file instead of continuing from the last line from the bullet points.

    You can move up the long text in the document so it continues from the previous page. See the below screenshot for an example.
