    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.

    UPDATE: We are excited to announce that we have just released the new version of JotForm PDF Editor.

    I have created a Form and added a Text Area in it. I have created a Fillable PDF form out from it and the text entered in the Text Area wraps making it visible in multiple lines and not running of the page.

    I hope this helps. If you need any further assistance about editing PDFs you can check out How to edit a PDF guide. Thank you.
