    How print the selected options in the Checkbox in Dropdown widget as a list items?

    Asked by 3palmszoo on May 21, 2016 at 12:45 PM

    When a user prints a form which includes select fields (example, choose 5 animals from this list), the printout shows the choices in a row separated by commas:

    Choice 1, Choice 2, Choice 3, etc.


    This causes long list selections to be cut off at the end of the field space.


    I would like for this type of field to be printed out as a list like it does in the PDF view.

    Choice 1

    Choice 2

    Choice 3



    I believe I have also ran into an issue where a client printed the form, but did not submit it (I never received it!)  Is there a way to prevent that?  Maybe a print & submit button instead?

    Unfortunately, this is not possible in the form view. I tried this with CSS, but it seems the selected options are part of a single div element, not separate.

    A workaround would be to create an autoresponder email in the form. In the autoresponder email, add the PDF Link tag. The PDF Link will be converted into a full download link of the PDF file of the submission. So, instead of printing the data within the form, they'll download the PDF and print it.


    I hope this works for you.
