    When I export my form as a PDF it is different and worse than when I preview it.

    Asked by AgencePipelettes on May 21, 2015 at 04:10 AM

    Dear Jotforms,

    When I export my form as a PDF it has many errors on it (spacing, font, size of font etc) that do not show up at all on the preview or in edit mode. Why would these errors be occurring on the PDF and how can I avoid them.

    Many thanks in advance

    I'm sorry for that matter. The PDF should work, but the format is expected not to be the same in the original online form view.

    This guide will also help you to know more about our fillable PDF:


    If you can tell us the difference, we would be happy to submit this thread to our developers so they can check further and advice. Also, please don't forget to add the form link to your reply as well as the current PDF.
