Hello again,

I made a custom pdf template and styled it, colors and font sizes work well and already look quite good.
I noticed that some things do not work regarding the styling of a table that I inserted:
- padding could not be applied
- the height of the cells cannot be set / it does not respond to the font-size that I set for the contents of the cells

I also added input fields (type text) that work pretty good - users can write into it and save the pdf with the added values.
These can also not be styled via css... Border options, background-color (...) nothing changes.

Is there anything I can do about it or is it just not possible?

Thanks and best regards

the underlying framework (TCPDF) isn't perfect and basically operating on CSS 1.1 level.

You could try actual 'height=""' values instead of CSS for <td> elements or do some trickery with transparent images and their heights inside <td>s

Elements I didn't try myself yet, maybe upgrading to a newer TCPDF would lead to slightly better results but I need to test that before myself then.
