    Hi support,

    When recipients receive the PDF version of the form, the threat types in the group of threats widget matrix does not display. How can we get this to display? It displays fine in an email body. 

    This is the form in reference

    Thanks,

    I have tested your form and replicated the issue. In the email content and the submission, the configurable list widget static text can't be viewed.

    It seems you're using custom CSS to align the text for the static field.

    And the static field is empty as you have used CSS to fill the content.

    tr:nth-child(2) .col1:before {
        content: "Road Conditions";
    }

    This seems to be the reason why the field is empty in the PDF,submission and email contents.

    If you add a text after static, the text is displayed correctly.

    Hope this information helps.

    Thanks for your quick response.
    I had originally designed the form with the name of the field after static within general however that would give each row the same name. To give a different name to each row, I had to create that custom css code. Therefore, can I put the name after static somehow in the custom css?
    Thanks,
    Steven

    I am afraid this is not possible to pass the row names in the Configurable List widget.

    You can add the rows with an Input Table field, but it does not support the different inputs and a dynamic number of rows.

    Seriously? There must be another way to accomplish this otherwise this can be a dealbreaker for us…

    We have escalated a feature request ticket to see if the row names can be implemented at some point. There is no ETA for when this will be addressed, but we will let you know if we have any updates.

    You may consider using the Input Table or the regular fields.

    Here is an example with the regular fields:

    You can clone the form to check it in the editor.
