    Calculated fields are not showing up when I save my form to a PDF. Is that normal?

    Asked by dmccann on July 21, 2015 at 12:07 PM

    I have created a form that includes calculations using the Form Calculations widget.  I'm summing some fields and subtracting others.  However, when I export the form as a PDF so that someone could fill it out offline, those fields are skipped.  Is it possible to include them in the export?

    Also, I'd like to have more control to align my fields horizontally within the form for better design.  So instead of having them all left-justified, I'd like some fields to be indented...is there a way to set the location of individual fields?

    Unfortunately, conditions on Fillable PDF forms are not possible at this time. Actually, this was already raised on a different thread.  I will escalate this to our Developers so that they can add you up to the users who are looking to have this feature. Please be advised that I cannot provide any ETA to when this will be implemented. 

    Regarding your other concern, I have moved it to a new thread so we can better assist you. We believe that it is better to have a separate thread per question to avoid confusion with the answers. You can follow that thread by clicking this link

    Thank you.
