    GET PDF: Ability to modify the template (ie.put the first name next to the last name field) to get the info in one page.

    Asked by amhomelife on May 23, 2014 at 01:13 PM
    we would like the ability to simply modify the GET PDF (put the first name next to the last name field) in an effort to get submission information on one page.  Is there a way to handle this task simply?

    I'm afraid you would have two switch out the two frist name and Last name fields with the full name field as shown below:

    This is because they are treated as separate fields by the PDF generator - hence different horizontal lines when rendered.

    If you do switch the fields - you may want to do that on a copy of your form to prevent losing any data.

    Thanks, I was actually looking to have some of the fields layed out on the same line to save space so our final pdf doesn't truncate to two or more pages.

    On regards of getting the PDF Submission, that will be shown on a separate line, even if you change the field positioning on your form.
