Hi E2PDF,

I am a non-techie, can't code and have just made my first website. You're plugin is fab but I was hoping you could help me as I can't work out how to do a couple of things:

1. I am using E2PDF to create a thank you letter from a nomination form made using Caldera. I understand that you can't have a text box that re-sizes so I have created a text box in my E2PDF template for the maximum space available and I have mapped this to the thank you message field in my caldera form. However, sometimes these messages are a short one line message and other times they are a very long paragraph or two. If I use the formatting options to select centre, this centres all the text in the middle at the top only. I would like the message text/paragraphs to be justified not centred, but then to be positioned centrally in the text box both vertical and horizontally. Can I add css or html code in the format box to make this happen?? If so could you tell me what I need to input as I can't code and have tried googling but can't work it out.

2. I would also like the to display a preview of the E2PDF letter that will be produced from the caldera form so the person completing the form can double check how it appears and either complete the submission or go back and edit their entries. Is this possible? Could you explain how I do it if so?

Many thanks,

Mel P

Hi,

1. We have this feature already in "Feature Request" section (https://e2pdf.com/support/desk/text-vertical-center and it's included in our roadmap but unfortunately it's not yet released. As soon as this functionality will be available we will update this thread.

2. E2Pdf can work only with saved submitted data, so in theory process must look like this:

User Submit Data -> See PDF -> Can return and edit own submitted entry to re-submit data

Caldera forms has "Connected Forms" which can be something similar what you need to do, but after fast review it looks like it will be need to use some custom hooks with PHP coding to accomplish this task and modify output to show PDF with correctly entry set after first form submitted, as E2Pdf can't generate it in this way automatically.

We remain at your service.

Hi,

We just released an update (1.11.00) with support of vertical alignment for "html" object, so if it's acceptable for you, you can use it instead of "textarea" field until this option will be extended to "textarea" also.
