Bubble Page to PDF - New Plugin from Zeroqode

Hello there,
Can we show the pop up preloader several times ? I can’t figure it out. In the demo it’s not working as well. It’s working the first time but it’s not working the second time. “converting is finished” is always “yes” after the first download and we can’t set it to “no” when we hide the pop up (or it’s no setting up to no when we relaunch a download). Can you help me with this ?
Regards

Hi! Any update on this front?
Thank you :pray:

Hello, @tart2000design.
Apologies for the late reply. :pray:

Unfortunately, there is no updates yet. We have 2 major points that effecting the speed of the requested feature delivery - workload of the plugin developer and the complicity of the requested improvement. Adapting a pagebreaker functionality is quite difficult, but we will do our best to find the most workable and convenient solution for it.

Thank you for your patience.
Please be sure we inform you once the pagebreaker will be updated.

Regards,
Zeroqode Support Team

Hi, clean pagebreak would be great!
But I was wondering regarding this (Bubble Page to PDF - New Plugin from Zeroqode - #800 by tart2000design) issue, for which you asked to be added to my project…
At the moment, the PDF download is still broken… :confused:

@tart2000design ,

Oh, apologies for the mistake. Sure, this request is under investigation as well. We will check with the plugin developer the possibility to prioritize your report.

Thank you. :pray:

Hello, @kevin31.
Thanks for reaching out.

We would like to test your use case in your environment if it is possible. Will it be convenient for you to add our [email protected] email as a collaborator of your app? Please indicate the page where you are using the plugin and the sequence of steps to receive the error (trigger the plugin’s Convert to PDF action).

Thanks.

Hello!

I am having issues with getting the outputurl. The pdf is succesfully saving to the database, but when I try to add in the output url in an email or save as a file type to a log, nothing goes through.

This is possible with this plugin right? To create a pdf, then add it into an email?

My use case is making a log, that when saved by the instructor, a pdf is then emailed to the student.

Does anyone have any tutorials or help to make the PDF download work whether the user is on a desktop, phone or tablet? I’m really struggling with this and would appreciate any help. I’m not even sure if it’s possible. My ultimate goal is for it to appear well on the screen, but also ensure the download is a typical letter size. I’ve tried a lot, but nothing successful so any tips, tricks, etc would be amazing. Thank you!

Zerqode might not like me saying this but their entire plugin relies on the client-side which is bad for your situation with different screen sizes. I switched to SelectPDF (has a monthly cost but the plugin is made by Bubble) and it’s all done in the backend server-side.

Hello, friends! Thank you all for your patience :pray:

@projectmuse.dev,

Unfortunately, the result of the plugin conversion can be saved as text only. Thus, if you save the output file URL into your database the data type should be text.

You can refer to this example:
Bubble Page to PDF - New Plugin from Zeroqode - Showcase / Plugins - Bubble Forum

Yes, it is absolutely possible. :slightly_smiling_face:


@jpiercebbg,

The plugin is designed to covert to PDF the content of the page it “sees” on the page load. If the page viewport appears a mobile size - the resulting PDF file will contain a document with small pages, mobile-sized, just as it was previewed on the device before the conversion.

As a workaround, we can suggest you create a non-responsive page with the convenient for you design and formatting which will satisfy your needs as a resulting PDF file after the conversion.
This means, you can create a separate page with the content you want to convert to PDF having the same formatting and sizing, and open and convert it, instead of responsive page that’ll adapt for the device viewport and change the PDF file layout after conversion.

Hope it helps and makes sense for you :slightly_smiling_face:


@tylerboodman,

Thank you for your message. Well, the latest convert to PDF action of this plugin is running on the server-side (which provides a high PDF document quality). Still, it is fact that at the moment plugin can not run on the backend workflow. We are working on this and hope to release a new plugin version that’ll contain the most requested and necessary functionalities.

Thanks! Regards,

Hello @tart2000design,

Thank you so much for your patience. :pray:t2:

We have carefully investigated your application and here is the result:

The problem is that the RG is full of reusable elements and other RGs. These elements affect the server load and the plugin cannot convert the RG, unfortunately.

In this case, the only thing we can recommend you to create another Repeating Group that will be simplified especially for the PDF.

Apologies for not being able to help and please let us know if we can help with anything else about the plugin.

Best regards,

OK thanks for your message.
What’s weird is that the plugin works on the pdf_export page that has an even more complicated structure…
I hope that migration to the new Bubble responsive plugin engine will help…
Cheers,
Arthur

this plugin is generating blank PDFs for my app. My action config is attached. Can you please help?

Hello @mwurm93,
Thanks for reaching out!

Most probably, it is related to the fact that the plugin is starting the conversion process before 100% of the page content loads.

As a possible solution, allow us to recommend the following:

  • In the related workflow, add an action “Add a pause before the next action” before the “Generate pdf from HTML server side ConvertertoPDFv2.0” action. This will add extra time for the page to load the whole content.
  • Please do not forget to enable the “upload file to AWS and Auto save PDF” checkboxes

In case the issue still persists, please share the details of your setup (screenshots, video recordings, and workflow). This will allow us to identify any possible cause much faster.

Best regards,

@levon is there a way to add a page to an existing pdf in order to reduce processing time?

Usecase:
-user signs signature box and clicks agree
-this page is saved as a pdf and then added to a larger multipage pdf document.

@levon any help with this would be amazing.

Email attachment is not loading in gmail thumbnail.

This is how we are attaching the file to the email.

Hi @timzafir,
Thanks for reaching out :slightly_smiling_face:

Unfortunately, the current plugin functionality doesn’t provide such an option. Sorry about that. :pray:t2:

It’s because of the latest changes in the plugin. Unfortunately, we need to save the resulting PDF file as text as its value is text. Thus, the mail attachment cannot load in the Gmail thumbnail.

Please check this forum thread:

Hi Zeroqode Team!, Actually im using your PDF but is seems that doesnot work well with dropdowns, i have tried in several ways and the only way to print a pdf correctly is to show additional text with the dropdown selection (because the printed dropdowns shows other data rather than the selected one), are you working on this issue? are you noticed on this? I attach some pictures
