    How to make a numbered list in a textbox start with a different number other than "1"

    Asked by russellbest on July 23, 2015 at 03:23 PM

    How can I start a numbered list in a text box at another number than 1, or continue numbering from previous text boxes? I have 8 separate text boxes that each contain a numbered item, and I'd like them to progress 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, but currently it seems that since each is in a different text box, they can only number 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1.

    How do I format a text area (so a field that a user inputs paragraph text) so that when the submitted form is saved to PDF ("get PDF") the PDF displays all the text visibly in multiple lines, rather than running off the page in a single line? I want to distribute the PDF version of the submitted form, so it does little good to have the data saved on the backend but unable to fully display in the PDF.

    Is there a way to auto-email a PDF version of the submitted report when submitted? It seems to me the only option is that once the form is submitted, an administrator has to go into the report submissions, save the submitted form as PDF ("get PDF"), then manually email that PDF. I understand that "send an email after submission" conditions can be setup, but it appears to me that all this does is allow for conditions that send email notification, not a PDF of the submitted form.

    Is there a way for the user completing the form to save and return later to complete?

    T

    hanks in advance, and I look forward to hearing from you and hope these items can be easily resolved.

    When you say Textboxes, I assume that you are pertaining to this:

    Is that correct?

    You can be pertaining to a different field in the Form Builder. It can be the Radio field, Checkbox field, Spinner etc...

    Can you help us understand your concern more by giving us more details, please?

    We will wait for your response. Thank you.
