Hello,
I would like to modify the pdf-layout of the exported results. But I have no idea where to do so. It looks like it can't be done in the templates. And I can't find the php-file where it's config is stored.

So any help would greatly appreciated! ;-)

Thanx in advance!

HI there
For me ,i used to modify the pdf layout using a PDF document editor SDK .It offers a robust feature set to support all your PDF document level processing needs.In the process of document page modification and manipulation,there are two programming classes that will be used. One is PDFPage and the other is PDFDocument.You can also have a try.

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, in one of my plugin, i use tcpdf BUT with $pdf->writeHTML : i take the HTML from a question text, and add some basic css. (example from tcpdf website : www.tcpdf.org/examples/example_054.pdf )

I don't have a good css margin/padding/position system but it work good.

css padding and margin are used with mpdf ?

Hi Denis,

On behalf of Tammo: margins, padding and positioning are an oldie in mPDF. They practice what they preach: mpdf1.com/examples/new_features_4_0.pdf (page 3).

Or a little bit more recent: mpdf1.com/examples/mpdf54Demo.pdf

Open the examples on http://www.mpdf1.com/mpdf/index.php?page=Examples and try to find something that they do not support...

Hi,

Yes but it's "code generated" system. Here , i use only HTML done by "admin user" with HTML editor. Adding a simple css
div{margin:0 auto; width: 50%} for example don't really work .

I ask for publication of the plugin and send the git link here. This can be tested with mpdf : HTML+CSS only :).

After a long day of exploring different options I have decided to go with phantomjs. :)
