    Get PDF forms has line break issues causing words to be cut

    Asked by syncro on January 28, 2015 at 01:57 PM

    on all our forms, when we create a pdf thru the get pdf command, the forms do incorrect line breaks and split words up at the end of the line of words. When they split the lines up, there is no hyphen.  This started happening recently on all our forms when we create pdf 's out of them from the "get pdf " icon.  See example pdf of one of our forms attached and look at the sentence line breaks in the document and you will see what I mean
