    Unable to set the correct margins between lines for a pdf form

    Asked by Kgr0up on February 01, 2016 at 11:17 AM

    I am trying to make a pdf from this form, I put an image (a line) to divide sections, but the dvision line keeps moving on top of the upper fields and at the bottom there is a text that is covering the form of pyament options. I´ve moved around the padding and margins, but I am not to familiar with those options and am not sure what I did wrong and how to correct it.

    May I know what PDF reader you are using? We recommend using Adobe Reader and/or Foxit to properly view the PDF. You can learn more about the fillable PDF on this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/312-Fillable-PDF-Everything-you-need-to-know-about-JotForm-Fillable-PDF-Creator 

    This is what it looks like in my end.


    I have also removed the image as the divider to see if it gives be a better view. So far it looks good in my end. Although, I do agree that there are some overlaps. Could you please also try adding a page break to separate each section or push them on the other page if it cuts off the text.

    Let us know if that works.
