PDF Designer...Worthless

    The PDF Designer has come a very long way since the beginning of GoCanvas (especially when there was no PDF Designer at all).

    The PDF Designer will do what you are saying it doesn't. If you add/create section labels (or autogenerate) directly in the PDF designer, yes those fields will show every time (so don't do that).

    If you add a static text in the app and make it conditional with the screen, it will not show in the pdf designer if the screen doesn't appear in your app.

    You just need to experiment with it more.

    So I am just starting to work on the PDF part.  

    Do I need to take the labels off the app and make them all static text so they don't show on the PDF?  

    Example:  I have a field labeled customer which then gets filled in to be JOHN SMITH.  I don't need the word customer to appear at all.  

    Did I get this right?

    Are you using the PDF Designer?  If so, you can turn off "Show Field Labels" in either the Global Settings:

    Or the Field Settings:

     

    Using a combination of those two and static text on the PDF, you should be able to achieve what you're after.

    Does that help?
