Hi Vijay,

This is going to be really hard to debug for us with 3.9. So, even if you can't upgrade right now, if you would like to get some input here, I'd recommend try to create a minimal that reproduces this issue with 2016.3, and attach it to a response here.

Hello Alex,

I attached the sample form source,print_test.xml

I would like to understand the print letter button functionality.

my requirement is the print preview pdf has to be captured to some specified path, by looking at some of the documentation i understand the print feature is automatically supplied? am i right?

if so, how can i retrieve the generated pdf?

Regards,
Vijay

Hi Vijay,

When would you want the PDF to be generated? Typically, this is done either when the form is submitted, using the `send()` action [1], or in case you want users who filled out the form to be able to access the PDF, either through a PDF button at the bottom of the form, or by sending the PDF to users by email [2]. Would one of those techniques work for you?

hello Alex,

are these options to be set at properties.xml or can we use with in the form builder?

more precise my option is, when you click a print button, one copy should be sent to FTP and its should also give chance to print as document.

regards,
Vijay

Hi Vijay,

This is setup in the `properties-local.xml`. And there is no support for sending the PDF to an FTP server; however you can sent the PDF to a REST service you implement, and have that service store the PDF in your FTP server, or wherever you might want it to go.
