    Hey there,

    im trying to create a pdf file via plugin.

    How do i have to handle the line breaks from a Textarea for example. Either im getting just plain text in the pdf file or \n as written text in the pdf.

     

    Textarea:

    1

    2

    3

     

    PDF: 123 or “1\n2\n3”

     

    Thank you in advance.

    Hi JMH,

    you can use the html <pre> element. With it you can display formatted text exactly as you define it in your html document. You can read more about it here.

    I tried this in a small example and got the following result:

    Picture final PDF: See Attachment “PDF_withLinebreaks”

    Picture text field: See Attachment “textField”

    Code in the PDF Plugin  template:

    <h2>Welcome to the PDF Generator</h2>
    <p>Content of text field saved as String</p>
    <pre>{{textfield1}}</pre>
    

    Is this the format you are looking for?

    Best regards,

    Nina
