Incidents

In the Incidents portal, under Support on the home screen’s sidebar, you will see a list of any support incident that is open, closed, or pending. This is your hub for managing your support incidents.

The Incident Portal.

When creating a new incident (by clicking New Incident), you can edit your incident settings via our drop-down lists. That way we can tailor the samples we make to your preferences.

You’ll receive an email confirming that the incident has been created, which will include the incident ID number.

Within your newly created incident, you’ll be able to review your incident information, as well as have a direct means of contact with our support team throughout the problem-solving process.

I have a PDF form with fields in it that I will be outputting to. They are just text boxes that I want to keep as single line. I would like to word-wrap to another field when the text overflows. Is there any easy way that Essential PDF handles situations like this where I won’t have to create an algorithm myself?

Hi Allen,

Greetings from Syncfusion.

At present we do not have direct support for populate all the text box fields based on text overflow from a single string. Although we can achieve this requirement by a workaround in sample level and we have created a simple sample for the same. Which can be downloaded from below link:

Please refer our UG documentation to know more about Essential PDF:
