    Display text on PDF Submissions

    Asked by Håkan Ludvigson on October 28, 2014 at 12:57 PM

    I'm making a contract form, and i would like the submission itself to contain the actual terms of the contract.

    I was thinking it would be possible to do this by adding a pre-filled read-only text box, but the text box will not allow for any formatting and most importantly no line breaks (making a contract pretty much unreadable).

    So, what i want is that the PDF that includes the details of each submission should also include the long text (the contract terms). Is there any way to do this?

    Hi Håkan,

    You can actually copy and paste the text to your email notifications and format it there.


    You can also display the text from your form to the generated PDF submission by checking "Show Headers and Texts" on your form submissions page.

    Here's how:

    If you have further questions, let us know.
