Hi, 

We are trying to print a PDF document, a 2 page Terms & Conditions, after the Order form prints. 
I have been able to convert the PDF to jpg & embed the jpg in the form. 
But the T&C prints condensed & does not fil out the page. 

I am wondering if there is a way to designate a PDF to print or if there is a better way of accomplishing this. 
Should we store the Doc in the Database rather than the form? Any other ideas? 
This is a cloud environment (AWS) .

Thank you, 
Bill

We have a similar requirement for one segment of our business. Our solution was to recreate the PDF  in the report designer then added it as a subreport in a footer section.

This is a good idea and has been suggested here: 

Please vote for the idea it if has a practical application for your business.

The solution proposed by @Neil Cantral is the best option that is available today. If you do not need to print a paper copy, then you could host your PDF document online and include a hyperlink.

Hi Bill,
You mentioned you were able to convert a PDF attachment to an image for report designer, can you share how?

The Adobe PDF version I am using has a tool to convert to jpg. 

You should also be able to find a free converter online.

Thanks @wfilipiak67 I guess I’m really asking how are you using the converter to automatically do this?  Is that in report designer, through a customization or how?

Oh, It is not done automatically. 
 

The terms & conditions are static. So the image is the same in all cases.
