    Add background image on table in email body?

    Asked by jmancinelli on January 08, 2016 at 10:35 AM
    Can we somehow put an image background on a table? The css seems to
    convert back when I close the source code editor. This way at least I could
    try to align things to match correctly in the email body.

    I presume you are referring to the table shown in the email body of your notifications or autoresponders. I see you have a lot of forms being edited in your account. Could you please let us know what specific form and notification you would like to have a background image on its table? And a link to the background image so that we can download and test it further.

    We'll wait for your response.

    A 5 page form I have that I want to make look identical to the way my
    partner sent it to me. I figured I can probably do this by editing the
    table background to encapsulate a graphic image of the .pdf file then build
    the table appropriately around it for proper placement of my form answers.
    This way it would appear correct in the email that's received, (although
    not in the .pdf attachment until some more modifications are made on the
    editor you guys have.) But if you could give me an idea of how to place
    this table background (whether it's through CSS or not) It would be
    appreciated!

    Unfortunately, if you want to have the table with background image appear on the PDF submission it is not currently possible.

    I believe the PDF editor is still under development and being improved. You can make changes on the PDF layout but with limitations. CSS won't be able to work on the PDF submissions design or layout. Apologies.
