    Is it possible to Edit the Margins of a PDF Export?

    Asked by greatlakesgm on April 24, 2015 at 03:25 PM

    There are areas near the margins on the pdf sheet that do not print. I'm hoping to be able to edit the formatting to fix this. Please advise.

    I believe you are referring to the margins that appear on the sides of your pdf export of a submission that you download.

    If so then unfortunately I don't know of us currently having any method to edit the pdf output since that is currently the format that is exported as your pdf. 

    What you could try though would be to edit the pdf export within a pdf editor and remove it using the pdf editor and printing tools. I found this article that explains how you can do this using Adobe as an example.

    Alternatively, you could just try adjusting the printer magnification of your pdf document slightly.

    That article explains how to print with borderless printing.  Unfortunately, neither of my printers do this.

    I too wish I could edit the PDF output, because some of my text descriptors are overlapping on the PDF.

    Any additional news or helps with this margin/edit problem?

    Thank you

    To my understanding, you are looking to have your form printed (hard copy), is that correct? If that's the case you can click the link to your form: http://www.jotform.com/40374136557153

    Then, press Ctrl+P from your keyboard to print the form. By the way, this works perfectly with Google Chrome.

    If this is not what you mean, could you please give us a screenshot or more details of the issue you are having. We will wait for your response. Thank you.
