    Would it then be possible to add these "graphical" answers to be displayed in the PDF?

    You may get the values of the emoji and star rating using the Form Calculation widget.

    Would it then be possible to add these "graphical" answers to be displayed in the PDF?

    The Star and emoji slider are visible in the PDF document.

    Hope this information helps.

    If you need further assistance, let us know.

    So I am trying to give rather than get the calculation field to the star field.

    I have the number, lets say it's 8 which has been calculated from the answers to other questions, and I want to copy this to the Star field so that it will display on the PDF graphically rather than a number.

    Thank you for the added information.

    Unfortunately, we cannot update or give a value to the star or emoji slider.

    We can only retrieve the corresponding value.

    Just thought this may have been an easy start compared to a completely new functionality.

    I wanted exactly the same thing, my selfmade solution is to make 5 pictures with 1, 2, etc. yellow stars 'selected' and put them behind calculated value conditions...
    Less then ... points ---> show picture 1
    More then...and less than...points --> show picture 2

    Etcetera. Need some extra effort, but works very well...
