Hey there im using formidable forms and i have a large paragraph field in my form for a user to write a letter. If the user adds more text than can fit on a letter sized pdf, is there a way to continue the field on page 2 of the pdf?
Thanks

Hi,

Unfortunately it's now in alpha version. "HTML" object currently can split text only by "tags", but we hope to expand it for splitting text by "spaces" and "sentences" in current 1.08.xx branch.

Wow great job the new feature works great! Thank you so much!

One thing im having an issue with is fonts. I see it is possible to have 2 different fonts in an html object but it seems that the global font is overriding things. (eg. i have global font set to "open sans light" and the html object font set to "open sans light". then in the value box i have 2 values, 1 should be open sans light, and the other has an inline font style to change the second value to "pacifico". The font changes, but not to the font i want.) seems like its being overridden somewhere. Any ideas on this?
Thanks

Can you please recheck if all tags closed via "Right Mouse Click" -> "Properties" -> "Value". It will be also very helpful if you attach screenshot of this part to next message so we can see the structure. Thank you.
