    Could the pdf version of a form look exactly the same as when you fill the form

    Asked by HBY on May 27, 2014 at 07:24 AM

    Hi there

    I don't think that the way the pdf version of a form looks like is nice. Most of the time when I export a pdf version, some tables are divide in two instead of moving the all table to the next page and tables are not the same with which doesn't looks nice at all. Whereas when I fill the form, every table are in line.


    Could you please solve this?

    You must be referring to this -How-to-Create-a-PDF-Form

    When I made a PDF version of your Review form http://www.jotformeu.com/form/33223396331348 

    I was able to see what you meant


    Unfortunately, there is no means to solve this at the moment.

    When creating the PDF form, you have no control whatsoever of the PDF output. It would require a PDF editor/designer to be able to have user control in the design.

    The most you can do at this time is to do the adjustment on the form itself. You have to design the form in the form builder to match your desired PDF version output of the form.

    I will also submit a request to our developer to try if they can implement a PDF editor/designer option when exporting the form to PDF format.

    I cannot commit any time frame or even if the request feature will happen. The request had to pass approval first before it can be develop.

    In any case, we will notify you on this thread for any update on the status of the request ticket.

    Please inform us if you need further assistance.
