    Is there a way to do a css code or formatting trick to make a text box uniform in size. My star rating box is throwing alignment off no matter what sizing I try anywhere. I need to make my option style question answer field height the same as all my rating style question answer fields. Manually adjusting every field in the document is not only tedious, but difficult to do perfectly and even the smallest error adds up to big alignment issues by the bottom of the page.

    Unfortunately, we cannot inject custom CSS codes into a PDF document.

    What I can recommend is to make use of the EMPTY SPACE in the PDF Editor elements to correct the alignments of each field in the PDF. Here's an example:

    Unfortunately since I have conditional formatting only five sets of selections of answers appear per page, only those answered on the form. So when I tried spacing them and ran the pdf report it had tons of blank spaces everywhere. If the spaces behaved conditionally with cells above it then it would have worked.

    I understand. How about creating different PDFs for each set of answers. Each PDF designed for each set?

    Then create multiple email templates for each set wherein the dedicated PDF is attached. Use conditions to send them. Here's a guide on how-to-send-email-based-on-user-s-answer.

    Let us know if that'll work for you.
