Plumsail Forms is a product that allows customization of SharePoint Forms in Modern UI with many settings, custom containers such as Tabs and Accordions, custom controls, such as Ink Sketch for signatures, and more. These forms are easy to make and adjust well to screens of any sizes, but what about printing?

CSS Styles for PDF

On top of customizing specific options for export, you can also add custom CSS styles that will only apply to form when exported. It can be anything — from changing background color to changing how containers are displayed.

For example, it’s possible to add just a few lines of CSS to expand each tab:

These are just some basic examples, you can also run scripts for exporting form to PDF when you need it, for example, after saving an item. And you can come up with all sorts of unique options and styles combination for your specific form.

Read more about these settings and see how to implement them with your forms in our documentation.
