I need to improve the PDF export! 3 years 8 months ago #52760

Hello guys!

Is my first time in this forum, and i have a problem.

In the PDF export results from access codes, the visual of final archive is very bad! My client does not feel satisfied

I want to improve the PDF visual, or print the answers with a better visual.

In attach, a sent a example.

You have to modify the source code to achieve this. Improving the print answers feature would be nice to have. Please follow these instructions if you can give it a try: docs.limesurvey.org/How+to+contribute+new+features

Check file printanswers.php for your modifications.

Is there any improvement or workarounds on this?
This feature would be really nice. To be able to print single answers in a nice and readable format is useful for many scenarios.

Maybe it is possible to use the same code as in the printable export of the survey(admin\printablesurvey.php). This looks quite ok and readable IMHO.

I'm currently using the workaround to import the results in MS-Access and make a report there.

Cheers, keep up the good work.

Maybe this wont work at all, but if you are pleased with the html output, then maybe just print that to pdf? this is very easy on mac and linux. On windows I think you need ghostscript or cutepdf...

This is not a solution - but maybe its better than nothing?
