I have a problem to make data of my forms show up in the PDF file.
In the PDF file, it says that “No layout or dataset selected”
I have followed your instructions in formidablepro2pdf video tutorial.
Please have a look at the video, steps that I have done. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BSMzr8r3AdI
Hope you can help me.
Thank YouSeptember 3, 2015 at 8:49 pm #1416
You just need to add ID inside the dataset brackets after you paste the shortcode and it will work. Your shortcode should look like this;
[formidable-download form=”v2k5w9″ dataset=[id] layout=”23″]
Great video! Thanks! May we use it on the site to explain the repeatable fields?September 4, 2015 at 5:48 am #1419
Yes sure you can edit and use the video on this site.
I have put ID inside the brackets like this [id], but it returned the same results “No layout or dataset selected”.

Can you send temporary login credentials for your WP site to support at formidablepro2pdf dot com? If not, then from the PRO2PDF screen, please select the Formidable Form, a dataset and the layout then click the EXPORT button and let me know if the correct dataset merges into the PDF form. If that works, then send me a link to the form that has the shortcode in the On Submit message which provides the “DOWNLOAD” link, and I will attempt to troubleshoot without a login.September 4, 2015 at 6:46 am #1422
I have sent my the credentials you need to log into my site.

You should find the issue has been resolved. Your server was not saving the PDF properly so a coding change was necessary.
We remain at your service.
Thank you for using PRO2PDF!October 30, 2015 at 9:00 am #3160
Can you explain me what code you change as I think to have the same issue?October 30, 2015 at 3:15 pm #3189
The code was changed for all users in the following update. We can login to your site if you provide admin credentials to support at formidablepro2pdf DOT com, or provide a screenshot of the entire plugin screen with the Form, Dataset and Layout selected for further assistance.November 24, 2015 at 11:27 pm #3885
I still have this problem. It was working ok for a while but now I get the error:
“No layout or dataset selected.”
The version Im using is ‘Version 1.7.29’.
Please help. The plugin is dead and I need it.November 25, 2015 at 5:16 am #3895
I logged in and tested both Field Map Layouts and they are working as expected. You may have to wait a few seconds after selecting the Field Map Layout as there are 196 mapped fields that need to load and can causes a timeout, however that issue does not exist when using the shortcode to create the PDFs.November 25, 2015 at 9:59 pm #3916
Your shortcode was missing the layout=x parameter and will not work without it…
OLD SHORTCODE = [formidable-download form=”contact3″ dataset=[id]]
NEW SHORTCODE = [formidable-download form=”contact3″ dataset=[id] layout=”52″]
Now it works correctly, without the merge error!
