    Can I set margins and page breaks for a submission when it converts to a PDF?

    Asked by SparkRehab on June 19, 2015 at 08:45 AM

    When I receive a submission I convert it to a PDF.  The result is that information is lost due to the narrow margins are outside print capabilities.  Also the page break pushes information to the top of the next page and that is lost due to the print margins.  

    As a result I have to convert to word and then adjust each line in the form so the information is on the printable portion of the page.  It take substantial time. 

     

    The attached picture shows a PDF page.  You can clearly see the margin at the top of page 2 ios too small and that information is lost on printing.  Also some information is lost down the sides.

     

    Converting all the submission to word and then hand correcting them takes a huge amount of time.

    Hi SparkRehab,

    Unfortunately at this time it is not possible to edit the margins and page breaks for your submissions PDF through JotForm. We do apologize for any inconvenience that has been caused.

    As an alternative, you can use an PDF editor that would allow to edit your PDF before printing, without having to make the changes in Word.

    Here are few PDF editors that you could use:

    Foxit

    Adobe Acrobat

    PDF Buddy

    I hope this helps, please feel free to contact us if you need further assistance.
