Mobilepro created the topic: Insert sections in PDF output

Hello -
I've created a multi-page employment app which is broken up in sections. The generated pdf attachment file just has the table in continuous rows of field/values. Is there any way to either statically adding in the sections to the pdf_attachment.php file or get it to dynamically generate the output with the sections included?

Thanks for any help

Hello,

By default section names are not being included in the pdf.

Either way, there is a trick which you can use to make the section names appear in the PDF export.

To add section names to PDF-export, follow these steps:
1) Create a new element for each section type "Hidden input"
2) To the Label field put the Label of wanted section.
3) In Value field put: -

The other option would be to create a PDF template where you could arrange the fields ant their values as well as any additional text as you want.
You can change the template as explained here crosstec.org/en/support/online-documenta...-s-pdf-template.html , but that would require quite a lot of custom coding.

Let me know whether you have managed to make this work as you wanted.

Regards,

Mihaela
