Gravity PDF 6.5: Quality of Life Improvements for Developers

Featured image for the Gravity PDF 6.5 Update blog post

Gravity PDF 6.5 sees us overhaul a little-known UI screen that was overlooked during the initial Gravity Forms 2.5 overhaul: the global PDF Extensions settings page, which is part of our PDF Global Settings pages. We overlooked it because we don’t actually have any Gravity PDF add-ons that register new global settings (yet), but a new extension in the works does register new global settings and how we noticed this oversight.

The gfpdf_core_template hook was updated to include context about the current PDF being generated. This will allow conditional CSS to be injected into Core and Universal PDFs dynamically. We also added an associated gfpdf_core_template_{$form_id} hook, too.

Other changes include standardizing how notices are displayed on Gravity PDF pages, a version bump to some of our JavaScript packages, validating custom template filenames when uploading to the PDF Template Manager, and fixing a couple PHP notices.
