    How to customize a PDF

    Asked by atlee64 on January 20, 2016 at 04:31 PM

    We are trying to print out PDF versions of form submissions, and have been using the Customize PDF feature. However, is there a way to format certain fields so that they shrink/expand based on the data submitted, rather just having a set "size" and sometimes the text gets cut off?

    If I understand correctly, you want to customize the PDF in a way that the field automatically expand or shrink depending on the length of the text? Unfortunately that is not possible with our current Customize PDF feature. For now you can put the text at the bottom of the field and adjust it's size so that longer texts do not get cut off.
