The current structures of both the print and pdf report generation lacks much to be desired.

My suggestions to the LimeSurvey team:

1. Dump HTML tables and encourage CSS based layouts for print.
2. Create a template system for print/pdf that allows the admin to setup the layouts based on group/question/sub-question.
3. This template system should allow for custom common headers and footers for branding and consistency.


1. Create a hook or API that the programmers can intercept the printing functionality to customize as needed.
