    Is there any way to improve the format of the PDF copy of submissions?

    Asked by djdemers1 on July 02, 2015 at 02:23 PM

    Is there any way to improve the formatting of the headers and text in the generated .pdf?

    My goal is to generate a signed contract. The current result appears unformatted and unprofessional, and I would hesitate to use it with clients. Thanks

    I understand that you are already aware of the Show Headers or Text feature of the submission page. However, that cannot be edited within Jotform. As a workaround, I would advise for you to add a Print Button on your form.

    Then, go to the submissions page to view and select the submission you would like to turn into a PDF. Then, click Edit

    Then, this should show up. 

    Scroll to the bottom of the form and click the Print Form button you have just added. (Note: This works better with Google Chrome)

    You will then be routed to the Print page of your web browser: 

    Once you have clicked Save, you will be asked to Save the PDF copy of that submission on your computer. The PDF copy should look like this: 

    I hope this helps. Let us know if you need any further assistance. Thank you.
