Gravity PDF 4.2 is a developer-focused release, but there’s a few exciting new features for end users, too.
We’ve added out-of-the-box support for pagebreaks in all Core and Universal PDF templates. To use, add the CSS class name “pagebreak” to fields in the Form Editor. The PDF will automatically put the field on a new page in the generated document.
Gravity Perks’ Terms of Service Field
The Terms of Service field got an update in this release. It’s now always shown in the Core and Universal PDFs regardless of whether the end user accepted the terms. If they didn’t accept, the text “Not accepted” will be displayed.
Getting Started Screen
A link to the Getting Started Screen is included on the Plugins page. The automatic redirect to this page on install / update has been removed.
PDF Master Password
For those who missed the Master Password feature from Gravity PDF v3, it’s now back. Enable it in the UI via a new filter.
PDF Shortcode Debug Messages
Enable in-browser debug messages for the Gravity PDF shortcode(s) via a new setting on the PDF global settings page.
Minimum Software Requirements Updated
WordPress 4.4 is now the minimum supported version. Ensure you are running 4.4 or higher before updating.
For developers, we’ve added a dozen new actions / filters to further customise the plugin. Also included is the add-on and licensing infrastructure so we can begin offering premium add-ons for Gravity PDF, as well as a number of bug fixes. Refer to the changelog for full details.
