    PDF Link: Can you edit the emailed version

    Asked by mewersmann on September 18, 2014 at 05:12 PM

    To whom it concerns,

    Is it possible to edit the PDF link that is emailed out after the form is submitted. Right now, it doesn't show up with the headers and it all runs together. It would be nice to see the headers and to also see the scale form answers. So, instead of it showing the answer of 2/5 then it would look how it does when the form is being filled out and answered. Thanks for any help that you can offer.

    Hi Mark,

    Unfortunately you cannot edit any of the PDF submission related data at this time. This is simply because there is no built-in PDF editor/designer within jotform yet.

    But at this time, you can also include Headers and Text when generating the submission PDF file.

    In the submission page view, make sure the option Show Headers and Texts is checked.

    See screenshot below for guidance

     

    Hope this help. Inform us if there is more we can help you with.

    Thanks.

    Hello Mark,

    We are currently working on a PDF editor and it is in alpha stage now -tested inside JotForm team-. We will be publishing its beta version very soon, so stay tuned. This thread will be updated when it is ready.

    Kind regards

    Thanks for the help. That did show the Header information. Is there another button that would show us the scale from the question instead of just the grade within a submitted document. Or would that be in the PDF editor? Thanks.

    Hi,

    The way the widget you are referring to reports the data, it is not currently possible to show the actual scale in the submission.  Only the numerical values are reported so there is not currently an option to view a visual representation.  Due to this, I do not believe the PDF editor would include this information either.  You would however be able to alter the PDF yourself to include the visual representation.

    Hello,

    We have just released our new PDF Editor and I was just announcing slowly to resolve majot bugs in the first steps by feedback.

    It is possible to get into the PDF Editor via submissions page -> Get PDF -> Customize PDF after clicking Get PDF.

     

    Looking forward to your thoughts.

    Kind regards

    Hi, 

    Is there a way to edit the text in the pdf customization page? Or is it just a visual editor?

    Thanks, michael
