Hello,

I'm looking for a way to customize pdf report from survey generated by Lime.

in
/admin/statistics_function.php

are
* pdf Config
*/
if($outputType=='pdf')
{
require_once('classes/tcpdf/config/lang/eng.php');
global $l;
$l = $statlang->gT("Page",'unescaped');
require_once('classes/tcpdf/mypdf.php');

// create new PDF document
$pdf = new MyPDF();
$pdf->SetFont($pdfdefaultfont,'',$pdffontsize);

$surveyInfo = getSurveyInfo($surveyid,$language);

// set document information
$pdf->SetCreator(PDF_CREATOR);
$pdf->SetAuthor('LimeSurvey');
$pdf->SetTitle('Statistic survey '.$surveyid);
$pdf->SetSubject($surveyInfo);
$pdf->SetKeywords('LimeSurvey, statistics, Survey '.$surveyid.'');
$pdf->SetDisplayMode('fullpage', 'two');

// set header and footer fonts
$pdf->setHeaderFont(Array($pdfdefaultfont, '', PDF_FONT_SIZE_MAIN));
$pdf->setFooterFont(Array($pdfdefaultfont, '', PDF_FONT_SIZE_DATA));

// set default header data
// the path looks awkward - did not find a better solution to set the image path?
$pdf->SetHeaderData("statistics.png", 10, $statlang->gT("Quick statistics",'unescaped') , $statlang->gT("Survey")." ".$surveyid." '".FlattenText($surveyInfo,true,'UTF-8')."'");


// set default monospaced font
$pdf->SetDefaultMonospacedFont(PDF_FONT_MONOSPACED);

//set margins
$pdf->SetMargins(PDF_MARGIN_LEFT, PDF_MARGIN_TOP, PDF_MARGIN_RIGHT);
$pdf->SetHeaderMargin(PDF_MARGIN_HEADER);
$pdf->SetFooterMargin(PDF_MARGIN_FOOTER);

//set auto page breaks
$pdf->SetAutoPageBreak(TRUE, PDF_MARGIN_BOTTOM);

//set image scale factor
$pdf->setImageScale(PDF_IMAGE_SCALE_RATIO);

//set some language-dependent strings
$pdf->setLanguageArray($l);
}

I didn't find any other links referring to pdf.

So, is there a template to modify pdf output, or only solution is to modify code above ?

I need to nest some picture in footer, or header if footer isn't available.

Any idea how to do it?

Let me start by saying that I am using LimeSurvey Version 2.00+ Build 121204 - and my workarounds are what many would call hacks (not to mention my primary language is Java)...

Now that we have that out of the way the place that you may want to start is ...applications/controllers/PrintanswersController.php

This is where both the printed version and the pdf start.

I'm reviving this old thread to see if anyone has managed anything in relation to formatting "Print answers" and "Printing to PDF".

This clearly has been an issue for a while, just wondering before I (or someone from my IT dept) starts hacking things to pieces.

Probably your problem has been solved, but just as a reminder for people that landed on this page through a search engine:

since the PDF output from LimeSurvey is a bit hard to alter, we use MPDF implemented in the backend. This works great, but you have to do some styling yourself.

Hi tammo,

mpdf seems great, if you have some solution that can be included in LimeSurvey core , you can create a pull request in our github.

Denis
PS: update our 'print pdf' to mPDF can be great with mpdf1.com/manual/index.php?tid=254 and include some pdf.css file in template (admin and public).
