Dropdowns Not Expanding in PDF Target

Postby CopperCarla on Fri Apr 26, 2019 1:08 pm

Trying to generate a PDF target for a project that is usually set to be built in HTML 5.

There are multiple dropdown headings in several topics. When we try to generate a plain PDF for review purposes, we're selecting the Expand Text Inline option on the PDF Target and the Advanced tab, but nothing is expanding when the PDF is generated.

Any suggestions?

UPDATE: I found that changing

style="display: none;"

to
style="display: all;"


will show all the text in the generated PDF, but it's overlapping. Part of the issue solved, but still not usable.

We're working with files generated by a writer overseas, and trying to provide some feedback, so I don't have control over how the content was created originally. It shouldn't be this difficult to get a PDF to show ALL content in the project, whether it's in a drop-down or not.

And since some of the review content comes from non-Flare users, PDF is our best internal option at this time.
