Bubble Page to PDF - New Plugin from Zeroqode

Hi Zeroqode,

I have a small issue with my Bubble Page to Pdf plugin. Currently, it’s not showing “input” values anymore, while in last few weeks this was the case. Do you know to what this can be related and if I can fix it? Thanks!!

Kind regards,
Gerben

@gilles How does this privacy work in practice? I read the reference info and searched the forum, but it is not clear how this actually functions in practice.

Hi @robert,

Will explain with more tomorrow. Any file you currently upload to AWS can be accessed using your file link. Also, someone with reasonable skills can find your files, and everyone else’s, in the AWS forest. Setting the file private upfront locks it down with a key and password.

Hello @gilles

Thanks for your feedback, unfortunately at the moment we don’t have access to this propriety via Plugin API in order to implement it, however we’ve taken into consideration and we’ll see if and how feasible it’ll be for us to be added.

For now, could recommend you try set the Privacy Rules - https://bubble.io/reference#Data.Privacy for your files read/write access in DB.

Hope this helps. :pray:

Zeroqode Team.

Hello @gerben

Sorry for the trouble, could you kindly provide more details, like steps to reproduce the issue, page setup, plugin setup, action workflows , console.logs, etc so we could help you better?
Thanks for understanding :pray:

Hi @ZeroqodeSupport,

The free upload apps, like Uppy File uploader (and your multi-file uploader), all have this as an option. Why does your plugin not have access to the plugin API to allow this? Is this a bubble restriction?

Even with privacy settings, I can still access the file if I have the (not private) s3 link. Emmanuel mentions this in this post: Make File Private using workflow

File privacy must be set at upload time, it can’t be done via workflow after the fact. That’s why it’s important if file privacy can be set via your app. Given that most of your users will be publishing probably some sort of confidential document, it would fit well to have this feature with your PDF plugin.

Thank you,
Gilles

Thanks @gilles for provided examples.

But believe as you’ve already noted, all the plugins are “Uploaders” which were written with a feature in mind I assume which can be implemented more straightforward.
While Bubble page to PDF offers a file after the process, it is an exposed state value which is a lil different from a typical file uploaded into bubble.

While the plugin API does not has a standard element propriety to be used and it needs to be written differently , as mentioned we’ve taken into consideration to offer such option however we’ll need to assess the possibility before moving forward.

Thanks for feedback and your understanding. :pray:

I’m having trouble generating PDF files. Until yesterday everything worked fine, without any changes being made, the plugin stopped generating the PDF file without presenting any error!
These problems appear on the console when the PDF generation flow is triggered.

If I remove all images of the element that I am generating the PDF, it works. With images it doesn’t work!

Hello @ribeiro.osmar

Thanks for reaching out and sorry for the trouble :pray:

Can you double check if you still receive the issue?
Also if you do receive, would kindly provide more details , like steps to reproduce the issue, workflow setup, browser ver., OS etc so we could check this out?
Thanks for understanding.

Hi, Finally got the plugin to work.

The element to be converted to PDF must be visible for it to work.

I used a workaround and placed my buttons on the same group tat has the invoice visible.

Hope this helps someone else

@ZeroqodeSupport please i have a quick question. If some fields are hidden due to responsive settings for mobile, Is there a way to still print the full group plus the hidden elements?

Hello, @adunniola.
Apologies for the late reply :pray:

No, unfortunately, it is not possible. The Bubble page to PDF plugin needs an object/element to be visible on the page load (current page) to convert it to a PDF file. Any other variant is not an option (hidden element or elements from another page), I’m afraid.

One last Thing.

I noticed that the create and upload pdf to DB is not working. I even tested with your demo page. The file is not uploaded to bubble DB.

Hi @levon

Your plugin works well in current environments. However, it does not seem to work with IE (1909 Build 18363.1316) and also with older browsers like Chrome 80.0.3987.106 (32-bit) and Firefox 52.3.0 (32-bit). Unfortunately, no error message appear. The PDF is simply not created and saved in the database.

I went live with my site yesterday. Around 700 users need to enter orders for a project over the next two weeks through this. Accordingly, it is quite urgent. The bad thing is that most users use IE as default browser in an even older version 11.0.9600.19596. Unfortunately I have not checked this until now :frowning:

Can you help me, please?

Cheers
Oliver

I tried to use it with an Arabic-content Page
Unfortunately the characters inside my result PDF file were disjointed, which make it an unreadable document.

would you please check PDF language encoding.

P.S: you already include Arabic content text in the demo Page which were encouraging to me to buy the plugins , But as the text was a separated random letters the problem was not noticed.

this is the page I am trying to export as PDF

this is the Generated PDF

Thank you

@adunniola, hi. That’s strange, it was working fine these days. Let us please check it :pray:


Hello @oliver.zanetti. Thanks for reaching out.

I’m afraid our plugins are developed to work well on the latest browser versions. We can do nothing but recommend you to upgrade your browser versions. Apologies for the inconvenience, Oliver.


@seham, let me please check this issue with our team. I will get back to you asap. Thanks for understanding.

@adunniola,

We have re-checked the reported functionality and there are no issues on our side. Perhaps it was a temporary problem, caused by the server issues (server which converts your PDF files).

Please see the example of a workable PDF file save to the database and sending the saved files via email:

I hope it helps :pray:


@seham,

We will do our best to get back to you on Monday and provide some insights. Apologies for the inconvenience :pray:
