    Conditional Text fields are not showing on submission PDFs

    Asked by r83rob on November 10, 2016 at 03:09 PM

    My hidden fields all show up. There is no option to hide them in the submission editor PDF section as you describe only to delete them. At which point my form does not have the field that is Not hidden when filled out in it. I have it set up so only one version of a field is shown and the rest hidden. It used to work on the PDF off of the submissions but now either they all show up or only the ones I have not deleted in the PDF editor part of the submission as you describe. Help please!

    The Text fields are different from standard input fields. Unfortunately, we do not have an option to include conditional Text fields to the submission PDF output. You can only include all the Text and Heading fields at once.

    As a workaround, you can use the Short Scrollable Terms widget fields instead of the Text fields.

    Those widget fields should be normally included to the PDF output.
