    I am working on a form that will use the Matrix Dynamique widget. Now I need that information to go to a PDF.

    I see in the FAQ that someone else had to do the following to get it to work:

    "As a workaround, I was able to use conditions to copy the data to a standard hidden text field and then use this to fill in the PDF. Somehow your system recognizes multi-line text area and splits each line into a value that goes into separate fields automatically on the PDF. "

    My question is - How can I do what this person did for the PDF? Our account is at silver level. I would need to know the step by step so that I can add the responses. We are expecting about 4 - 5 response lines on the widget.

    Thank you,

    To achieve this, you will first need to add Long text input:


    You can hide this question on the form by right-clicking on it:


    After you have done this, you will have to add conditional logic to your form:


    Here, you need to check if Matrix Dynamique is filled, and if so, copy its value to the previously added long text entry:


    You can now map the long text entry to your PDF and display the user's data.

    Let us know if you have any additional questions.
