    Hello!


    You guys ROCK!


    How can I shorten the response on the form (FEMALE) to just (F) on the form?


    The question is GENDER.  The dropdown box options are FEMALE MALE OTHER

    On the PDF the box is very small.  I just want F M or O to show.  How do I do this?


    Thanks!

    Hi there,

    Thank you for reaching out.

    I have checked your form and it appears that you have been able to figure this one out yourself on your dropdown properties.






    May I please know if you still need and further assistance regarding this concern?

    No, actually I shortened the response options so they would FIT on the PDF form.  I would like the online form to say FEMALE but I want it to print on the PDF as F.

     

    Thanks!

    Hello,

    Thank you for your message.

    In this case, I create a clone of your form https://form.jotform.com/201686428494970.

    You can add the following another field under the gender, for example, "Gender Short", then with conditional logic add the letter base on each selection:

    With the following conditions:

    This is the result:

    Ok.  That's a lot of extra work just to accomplish what I want.  I think I'll just stick with the abbreviations.


    Thanks!
