Can I change the output of the check box when it displays onto the PDF


The output currently shows as true or false. I would prefer that it say yes for true and no for false, or it could even be an "x" when true and blank when false. Is this possible?

  • Hi Mary,
    Unfortunately, you cannot change the output (True or False) of the check box field when it displays onto the PDF.
    Workaround, would be to use multiple Choice field instead of checkbox field where you have the ability to enter your selection criteria.

  • Mary,

    I have achieved this by setting up an additional field with a field condition.  Below I have my checkbox.  Then I have my second field (hidden from the user) so I can use that for my PDF output.  I set up a default in the second field for what I would like it to say.

    This is the condition I use.

    If you add in an additional two field (do not have them visible to the user), set up one condition for true (yes) and one for false (no) I think you will be able to achieve what you are looking for.

    I hope this helps!

  • Hey Ashley,

    If I'm reading this right, you have a field that only shows up when that field is checked, and then that's the one you put onto the PDF? That makes sense, I'll try it. Thank you. 

  • That is correct.  It is a bit confusing.  I hope I explained it okay!
