Not able to set the column width of input table.

    Is there a reason why its so difficult to modify column sizes in the PDF editor? It's nearly impossible and one of the most frustrating experiences I've had lately. Up to this point, I've really enjoyed what jotforms had to offer but this is painful.

    In the screenshot below I have 3 sections; Somehow I was able to correctly get the size of columns in the first one, but no matter what I try in the next two it doesn't work. Most of the time, moving the column width bars don't have the right effect, certainly on the one to the left of Level 3. I can move that, and after releasing, it will just jump back to some random position.

    I've tried this in Chrome and Explorer. I would like my columns to be even so the report is neatly formatted.

    I did check your form's PDF editor and it seems you have changed the display time of the input tables which displays only selected option answer.

    I cloned your form and when I changed the display type of the input table field, the columns are adjusted automatically. Please check the screenshot below:


    I would suggest you to please change the display type of the input tables in PDF editor and see if that solves your problem.

    Do get back to us if the issue persists.

    I changed them all to show option answer only because I gave up fighting with the table sizes.

    When I perform those actions, I get different results. Please see screenshot below:

    Also, why would some of them have lines above the results, I had asked this previous and you missed it:

    I have cloned your form and will work on the PDF document. If the input table displays correctly, I will transfer the form to your account.

    I will get back to you on this soon.

    Please take a look at the following cloned form and see if the PDF document displays the input table correctly or not:

    Do get back to us if the issue persists, and then we will try to figure out if there can be any other cause (like screen resolution) of this issue.
