Additional PDF enhancements: hide a Section, an In Form Report or an In Form Chart in a PDF

Additional advanced properties have been developed to provide more flexibility for users when generating a PDF. A new Advanced Field Property has been developed for In Form Reports, In Form Charts and Sections called "Show in PDF reports". By default this will be set to True, so all current inform charts, inform reports and sections will appear in a PDF. Once this is set to False, the specific In Form field or section (and ALL fields in that section) will be hidden in a PDF.

In Form Reports can be hidden in a PDF. Set the "Show in PDF reports" in the Advanced Properties to False.

The InForm Charts now have an Advanced Properties section. Set the "Show in PDF reports" to False to hide in a PDF.

Now an entire Section (and ALL fields in that section) can be set to be hidden in a PDF. Note, regardless of whether or not a field within a section is set to appear or hide in a pdf, no fields in a section set to not show in a pdf WILL appear

On the system when Save and Print is selected, any Show in PDF report  = False Fields, In Form Reports or Chart, or Section will be hidden in the PDF that is generated (as shown in the image here from the entry form on the left to the report on the right ).

N.B. If a Performance Alert is set off this form, the same PDF settings are retained
