Gravity PDF 5.3 Artwork

We’re pleased to announce the release of Gravity PDF 5.3 which includes support for two popular third party Gravity Forms plugins, and adds a new configuration check to the system status area. Plus you get all the usual bug squashing our team does regularly 🐛. It’s all part of our commitment to provide you with quality software that just works.

New features

Live Merge Tag processing in PDFs i.e. @{Name:1} or @{Name:1:fallback[Something]}

Display the correct user-selected currency for Number and Product Fields in the PDF

  • PHP directive  allow_url_fopen  has been added to the Gravity PDF and Gravity Forms System Status areas

If this runtime setting is disabled, you may notice image display problems in the PDFs. We now include a warning about it on the System Status page.
