    PDF Form - Layout flats out

    Asked by jar011081 on November 16, 2016 at 03:10 PM


    I find the online version of the form satisfying. However the PDF version is not ok. Firstly let me state, it could be that I can't find out to the adjust the layout.

    All the boxes/fields/background are rushed over to the left border and i can't find to center the form into the pdf sheet.

    How do I proceed from here.

    Best regards

    Unfortunately, PDF generation is not a trivial task especially on forms with complex layouts. The files are generated automatically, we do not provide controls to adjust fillable PDFs.

    If you need a PDF for printing, I would like to suggest saving a web version of the form as a PDF file. It can be done in Google Chrome: How to Save a Web Page as a PDF

    In this case you will get a printable form PDF with a layout similar to your web form.
