    Customizing PDF output

    Asked by gijs_ros on April 24, 2016 at 06:19 AM

    Dear Jotform,

    This far i completely love Jotform, but i am having a major issue now that might stop me from using Jotform all together.

    i have created this form: https://form.jotformeu.com/60573168018355
    On my form, people create a packinglist for their holidays, which they will receive per PDF in their e-mail inbox.

    My problem is that the editing of the PDF output is VERY poor... i can only move some textfields and add an image.
    I cannot send my customers this PDF file, because to be honest.. it looks horrible.

    Could u tell me if there is a work around (3d party?) for my problem??

    Maybe i can send the generated data in the packinglist automatically to a 3d party software where i created a PDF template, before sending it automatically to the right customer?

    Hope to hear from you soon!

    Kind regards,

    We would like to apologize for any inconvenience. Although I'm not sure what particular changes/style would you like to apply to your PDFs. I have seen these online PDF editors that you might want to check:



    Or, you might want to download these apps



    Those mentioned above are all 3rd party apps/website and Jotform is not at any point affiliated with any of it.

    Thank you.
