    How to customize exported PDF's

    Asked by MammutSportsGroup on May 05, 2015 at 10:08 AM

    I wanted to ask if there is a way to make forms, that are exported as PDF, look better. I have been working with Adobe Forms for a long time and the exported (and filled in) PDF's always looked like the form itself and were very easy to read. Exported JotForm forms look not that good - questions have different widths and depending whether there is a title or not there is just a gray box on the left side with no text. If I have a matrix with different choices I might not even want there to be a check-sign inside, just a dot would do as well.


    Is there a way to make this look better and easier to read?

    Our developers are working on it. But you can show the headers, images and text fields in the PDF format of a submission. But, the PDF  won't look exactly the same as the form even though all the information will be there.

    I hope it helps.
