Our team has been working on the next-gen Gravity PDF 5.0 for the last 6 months, but have had to put further development on hold until Gravity Forms 2.3 is released. In the mean time, we have back-ported a number of features and bug fixes for Gravity PDF 4.4 and we need your help testing the software before an official release.
Gravity Forms Chained Select
We’ve added full support for the Gravity Forms Chained Select plugin, and the field will now display correctly in Core and Universal templates. Developers will also have access to the data via the
Gravity Forms add-on Conditional Logic
The PDF conditional logic will now include additional Gravity Forms add-on logic, such as the Quiz Pass/Fail condition.
Pagebreak CSS Class on the Pagebreak field
When the “Show Page Names” PDF setting is enabled, the
pagebreak CSS class can be used in conjunction with the Pagebreak field (except the very first one).
PDF Settings Rich Text Editor
Content will now expand the full-length of the Rich Text Editor. This should make adding Header/Footers easier for you.
There’s a large number of bug fixes included in this release. Some of the most noticeable include fixing the PDF Template Manager Select button position, preventing multiple ‘spinners’ showing up after installing a new template, display the correct subtotal value for the Gravity Perks E-Commerce add-on and stopping a Rich Text Editor loading issue when selecting different templates.
Warning: this is a release candidate which means it may contain bugs that can cause issues on your website. Do NOT use in a production environment.
To test, we recommend using the WP Rollback plugin to roll Gravity PDF forward to version 4.4. Otherwise, install via uploading the zip file using the plugin installer, or using FTP.
