    Page Break Trouble: PDF does not display properly

    Asked by drjax on November 05, 2014 at 04:15 PM

    In form design I put page breaks.  When I download the pdf, the page breaks are in the wrong place.  Here is an example in Edit Mode.

    Here is how it displays in PDF.

    Unfortunately you cannot modify or customize yet the submission's PDF file output/download.

    There is no built-in PDF editor or designer within the Form Builder that will let you customize the PDF download.

    But this feature is already on the line up. A form PDF designer/editor is on the works -- I just have no more details on when it will be available.

    For the mean time, I can only suggest a workaround to design your form in such way that it have a PDF output that have the pages or sections fit in to each pages of the PDF output.

    It could take some trial and error to be able to come up with the right form setup that will have the PDF output.. but it is doable.

    Hope this help. Please inform us if you need further assistance.
