    Hello JotForm Support, is there another widget or code piece that could enable a large amount of text (T&C, application agreement, etc...) to show up on the PDF export? We're trying to consolidate as many efforts as possible and some of our lenders/partners require the terms to be written out when we send them over the pdf application, as opposed to just a clickable link or checkbox of agreement to terms.

    Thank you,

    Ryan

    Hi Ryan,

    You can use our Free Text HTML field and use a checkbox that would serve as the acceptance box. You can then use our Scrollable Text widget to add a scroll bar and auto adjust the height of the text field.

    http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/scrollable_text

    The Free Text HTML is labeled as "Text" in the Form Tools section.

    Here's an example form, https://form.jotform.com/53153308369962.

    Now, to include the text in the PDF, you need to check the Show Headers and Texts by default in the form submissions page settings:

    Here's how to access the form submissions page: https://www.jotform.com/help/269-How-to-view-Submissions.

    Thanks
