Good morning limesurvey community,

to start I have searched the forum for answers as well as going over the limesurvey manual with no success hence i'm creating a new post in attempt to get some answers :) I hope.

the problem I am encountering which I have no idea if there is a way around is that the exported PDF response/quick statistic layout will separate each questions to a new page. With 89 questions, I end up with a 91 page of summary report. what I have also noticed is that even with the array questions, each questions within the array also gets placed on a new page with its responses summary provided. so basically doesn't matter how your questions are grouped, the standard exported PDF layout format will place each questions on a single page with its response summary.





is there a easy way to create a continuous report layout where the it does not place each question on a new page rather until the blank spots on the page is used up before it skips to the next page? if this is possible, the exported PDF report will probably be only 25 pages rather than 91.

thanks so much!

Formatting PDF files isn't easy. So I guess programmers were going the easy way to avoid questions to be cut off and not fit on one page, by putting each question on one page.

I don't think there is a easy way to make various questions fit on one page. You would need to check the available space, the space the next question needs and then fit it in or include a page break. Sounds easy for a human, but I think programming wise there is no really simple solution for this.
