    Page Breaks are not included in the created Fillable PDF Form

    Asked by holycrosslutheranMF on July 09, 2015 at 04:50 PM
    Looking at your screen shots in your response I see the same problems. For example, on the bottom of page 1 are the instructions for the survey questions that are on page 2. Other pages run together. The form preview shows everything correctly, all 7 pages. I need the pdf to look just like the preview so I can use this form as a handout as well as an email attachment.

    Thank you for explaining further. 

    I also realize now what was missing. Its the Page Break of the form. 

    Even when I selected the option to include the existing page breaks in the form, the generated Fillable PDF Form did not include them.

    As far as I know, this is still a work in progress. So it must be a glitch on the PDF creator tool.

    I will submit a bug ticket report again to our dev team so that they will be aware of this, and hopefully have a quick fix.

    We will let you know here for any updates.

    There is no need for Page Breaks to appear on the PDF Form, but the issue is that the PDF Form pages is not aligned to the pages of the source form.

    Example, the actual form have 7 pages, but the generated Fillable PDF Form only have 4 pages

    I will explain this on the bug ticket report I have submitted as well.
