Good afternoon.

Input-ready PDFs created in Adobe are imported by document generation.

After refining one line in the Document Builder:

1) There is a difference in the size of full-width characters and half-width numbers.

(2) When I check the PDF stored in the attachment, some of the input items are not displayed. but can be seen when downloading and checking.

(3) The size of the entered items seen in SmartSheet and the downloaded PDF - The text size of the entered items seen in SmartSheet is different from that seen in the downloaded PDF.


When creating items that can be entered using a form from a PDF

Font (Meirio) and size, single/multiple lines, left-aligning Box size to be input is unified.

SmartSheet also has a unified font and size (Maylio)

Does anyone know what is causing this?

    Hi @Kadowaki Hiroyuki

    As you can see in the Fonts tab of Smartsheet, the fonts currently supported by Smartsheet are Arial, Tahoma, Times, and Verdana.

    Use Tahoma in place of Meiryo in Japanese hankaku

    I set Tahoma, which seems closest to Meiryo in Adobe's text field properties, and it displayed correctly in the attachment, including the half-width portion, as specified.

    Click on the link below to see the document created in the attached file with the published demo sheet.

    Kadowaki さん こんにちは

    Smartsheetのフォントのタブにあるように、現在、SmartsheetでサポートされているフォントはArial, Tahoma, Times, and Verdanaです。





    Tahoma is the closest to the Meiryo.

    > Some of the input items are not displayed

    The attachment did not display half-width characters created with the Meiryo Font designation.

    Meiryo Font指定で作成された半角文字は添付ファイルでは表示されませんでした。

    Hi jmyzk.

    I am very happy with the detailed research you have done.

    I was struggling with inefficiency because of the fine tuning of the input fields.

    I will fix it and try again.

    Thank you very much.


    こんにちわ jmyzkさん

    Happy to help! 

    Smartsheet should simplify creating documents without going through third-party apps like Adobe Acrobat. (A candidate would be some editor features like creating a table in the customized message using the placeholders (field names in braces, as {{Task Name}}) as in alerts and requests.

    Adobe AcrobatでのPDFの作成は確かに面倒です。Smartsheetにはアラートなどで{{タスク名}}のようなプレースホルダーによるカスタマイズメッセージ機能があるので、そのような機能を応用し外部アプリを使わずに表のあるドキュメントが作れるようなエディタがあれば、と思います。

    Hi jmyzk_.

    Thank you for your comment.

    You are right.

    When we open the input to many members, it is troublesome to manage changes and so on.

    I keep review records in PDF format and store them in fragments,

    I think it is an important document to attach to the workflow at that time and to control exclusivity.

    Thank you very much.
