    Fillable PDF form: Matrix field grid lines are not showing and column heading seems to be left aligned

    Asked by holycrosslutheranMF on June 12, 2015 at 01:50 PM
    2) The survey matrix in the created pdf does not include grid lines like it did in FormsCentral. Is there a way to have grid lines? This helps for people filling out a hard copy. Also, the column headings look left justified while the radio buttons are centered. Can the column headings also be centered?

    The fillable PDF converter is a new feature of JotForm and is currently ongoing improvements. Your feedback like this one is a way for our developers to make the feature better.

    Currently, it seems like the grid lines for the Matrix field is not showing in the fillable PDF form. The column headings seems to be left aligned too. I'll need to forward this to our developers to have it checked and see if they can make improvements on it.

    I've made a test form and this is how it looks like:
