    Collapsing Lines in Tables

    Asked by dtgmbilginotu on December 05, 2013 at 03:34 AM

    Dear Correspondent,

    In my form, I have been trying to put certain tables in order for the user to fill it. I noticed that, whenever I put entries, the line does not itself fall to the next line when the space is filled with letters. How can I do that? I can not see the remainder of the line whenever it exceeds the limited space.

     

    Kind regards

    Hi,

    Matrix input fields uses the textbox properties. Wrapping text using textbox is not possible. You may consider using text area field instead then align each field using field positioning function: Form Field Positioning.

    Thanks

    Hi Welvin,

    Thanks for your response. I did try to re-position. I succeeded. However when I get the pdf download, I see the inputs in seperate lines. My target is to print out in pdf exactly as I see next to next. The result is seperate lines. 

    What I tried is, I took the html code and pasted into dreanweaver in order to see if I can convert them from text box to text area. I can do that. However again, the layout page shows in a single line. Can we do that with CSS injection?

    Or maybe if I had the idea of how pdf receives the information on cells, then I could find out the way to adjust it.

    Kind regards.

    Since very large text can be written in the textarea we need to show them as separate lines on the PDF. And it is possible to access the PDF output with CSS inject. So, there is no way to do what you want on the PDF download.
