    When I have notifications set to PDF, the header on hidden/unused pages still shows up on the PDF attachment. Looking at the customizable PDF editor, all of the headers and a photo do not show up as options to include or not to include. I have no idea how to remove those unused headers and photo. I've tried to Hide/Show if the page is used, but that doesn't help this issue. Can you help?

    Here is the form. Attached is the PDF that gets sent with the notification
    emails that I'm speaking of. You can see all the page headers still, even
    when the page was not used.

    Hidden headers are not hidden in the PDF file, there is no option to hide hidden fields.

    The option available is to hide empty fields, it doesn't apply to headers.

    Please let us know if you have any further questions.
