    Hi. I am new and am trying to decide if I should buy this.

    I have a formidable form that collects a bunch of info from a user on page 1. Then on page 2 I want to display that info on a pre-existing PDF form I have and allow them to click submit to send them form to a defined email address.

    I have been able to upload my PDF and map the fields easily but how would I display the PDF so the user can preview it inside the Formidable form before clicking submit to send it?

    Thank you! Very cool product and I hope it can do this so we can use it.

    PRO2PDF does not have a way to preview PDFs in WordPress. You’ll need to use our newest plugin for that, E2Pdf. The free version may be installed from the WordPress Plugin Repository and includes all options for one, 1-page PDF template. Use the [e2pdf-view] to create a preview in WP of the PDF.

    E2Pdf is the most robust, feature rich PDF plugin for WordPress. No other plugin even comes close to the capabilities of E2Pdf.

    Hi thank you for the quick replay. I actually am using E2PDF.

    I see I can get the shortcode like this, [e2pdf-view id=”1″], but how would I display it in the formidable form page? I tried using the HTML block and text blocks with the shortcode but nothing happens.

    This site is for PRO2PDF support.

    Using the shortcode ‘prior’ to submitting the form may not be possible (I would personally need to test the DRAFT functionality), however, I typically make two forms and name the submit button on the first form “NEXT”, then forward the user to a 2nd form to verify/confirm the form data using the view shortcode… but…

    Please submit your E2Pdf support question here and be sure to ask about the possibility of using Formidable’ DRAFT functionality on a 2nd page of the original form. A developer will review your request and has the ability to add functionality when needed.

    Thank you so much! Sorry about the confusion I was reading between the two products and forgot I was on this page. I will post my question there.

    What I do not get is where would I past the [e2pdf-view id=”1″] shortcode to make it display. I have tried it everywhere and it has yet to display as anything.
