    I see you are using the "Customize PDF" option that allows you to edit the PDF layout of your PDF submissions.

    Unfortunately, it is not (yet) possible to edit the table of the matrix field in the PDF layout. It seems like it is dependent on its content.

    Let me forward this to our developers as a feature request, however, I am unable to guarantee that this will be implemented, it will depend on our developers current workload and the feasibility of this feature. But we will update you on this thread as soon as we hear any news. 

    Thank you.
