      peterberlin Thanks, that almost works but the Wysiwyg editor styles are completely different from what the PDF generates - which is a shame.

        Hi blueprint, that is because the PDF engine used by Espo (TCPDF) is VERY limited on the css styles that can be used.

        One workaround is to print to window and then use the browser's print to pdf capability to print exactly what you want.

        Check this posting, hopefully it might help.

          telecastg Thanks for the pointer to the post.

          Yeah, I've since done some more digging and found out about this limited CSS support.

          I did discover a better open source PHP PDF engine with much broader CSS support and I did set off down the path to replacing TCPDF with this other one however I discovered that it was more work than I had anticipated.

            That is too bad, was hoping it was feasibly possible.

            Perhaps a slow progress in the Github pull request will eventually create a decent PDF system. Or using some sort of library tools and work on implementation instead.

          blueprint Could you tell me the name of this engine ?. I'd like to check it out, TCPDF is very frustrating
