When printed, our forms look broken--huge font size, weird line breaks, lots of white space. How can I get a better printed result? Our office is Mac-based, BTW.

At minimum, I'd like to be able to reduce the font size. My people are wildly unhappy with the current print results, given that the hard copy is shared with clients and is also used for archival purposes.

Here are some ideas.

You may be able to get some improvement by going into your personal settings by clicking on your name at the top right and customize your personal settings and select Condensed.

There may be some opportunity to get more of your fields side by side to use up more if the white space on the form.   I see some white space on your 2nd page.

In some situations (not necessarily on the screen shots you posted, you can save space by arranging a your fields in a rectangular block and only label the columns and the rows. The rows are labelled using the form's Alternate Rescription setting for the field and columns are labelled using text elements on the form. Let me know if you want an example of that technique.

Lastly, if you generating a Client external document, you may feel it's worthwhile to implement the Juiced Technologies Exact Forms Plus product where you have full control over layout and font size.   I have helped clients implement the many times. Let me know if you want more info about that. I'm just on my iPhone now, or I would have posted a link for you. Contact me via the info in my Profile or Juiced for more information.
