Hi guys,

First of all i want to congratulate you for this amazing component.

I am currently using this component (or about to start using) i can easilly fill all the fields that i want but after downloading the document the PDF generated becomes not editable.

Is this supposed to happen?

Cheers,

Hi Pedro,

Thanks for the words and I'm glad that this component is useful for you and your project.


Yes, indeed this component after you fill the fields, the new file becomes not editable.

I'm studying the possibility to improve this component to add that option. To add an option to choose if the downloaded file becomes not editable or remains editable. But right now, yes it's supposed to happen.


Best Regards,

Pedro Ramalho

Hi Pedro,

Thanks for the quick reply.

I have customized the component to received a Boolean input to set if the document will become read only or not.

I've tested and it's now working. I can control if the output PDF will became read only or still editable.

Thanks.
