    Layout of the fillable PDF is not the same as the web version of my form

    Asked by premierdepogrl on March 16, 2015 at 06:13 PM


    So...trying to create the pdf and it came out really ugly.  Lots of spacing issues and just not great.  Also, look at the time box - very strange.  Help!

    Thank you for contacting us.

    I made a few tests using a cloned version of your form and was able to determine that the form looked that way because the width is 850px which is larger than a paper. So, in order to fix it I enabled the form columns in the form designer and used 2 columns and that make the look of the PDF version of the form more similar to the web version

    You can see the cloned version of your form here: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/50748772453968 feel free to clone it to your account if you want to.
