    Page Break and Header Font Fillable PDF problems

    Asked by CMACPD on April 15, 2015 at 01:07 PM

    Hi, 


    Having some output issues with the fillable pdf.  Wondering if there are some workarounds that I'm missing.

    Form Id: formID=50545569882266

     

    Problem One: Page Breaks

    Pages breaks appears very strange.  Mainly there is no margin at the top or bottom of the page.

     

    Problem Two: Font Conversion

    After conversion the "heading fonts" remain in Lucida Grande (Though they are blurry and grey).  While the field forms switch to Times (though they appear crisp and black).

     

    Thanks for your help and for this fillable option. As the kinks are worked out it will become very helpful!

    Please review also our tutorial on 

    -Fillable-PDF-Everything-you-need-to-know-about-JotForm-Fillable-PDF-Creator

    As mentioned on the user guide, the Page Break filled is not yet supported on the Fillable PDF Form conversion. If you have page break field in the form, it will not appear in the PDF form.

    I did noted that your jotform http://www.jotform.ca/form/50545569882266 doesn't have any page break field on it. So I think this issue was resolved already.

    As for the fonts, can you try first converting the fonts of the Header field into Times font-type before you convert the form to PDF Form?  That should make uniformity in the font typed used in the PDF form.

    You can do this in the Form Designer

     

    Hope this help. Please let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thanks.
