Hello @BubbleSam, I’m your first customer. This plugin is wonderful. Very simple and easy to use. I loved it.
I worked hard to create 100% full width and full height background in black (without any white margin) and make it high resolution.
I decided create a new Bubble page and create manually each group for represent each page of PDF. So when this page is loaded the plugin works to save PDF.
Initially I tried use 800px, but the quality is low even when I set 100 in compress quality.
For achive the full width I set 1280px and for achive the full height I found the number 1810px.
Now, the quality is great. Very better than plugin “Bubble Page to PDF” converter that have 2k users.
I hope this plugin surpass much more than that and be a great success
So I would like help with that and send any suggestions for make it better and the number 1 of PDF plugin.
1 - Explain in documentation about quality, some customers can give up if set 100 in quality and the result is low quality. Explain the possibility to make another page with for example 1280px for more quality or you can make better this compress.
2 - Create any option to full width and height or change background color to eliminate any white margim. It will save some time.
3 - Create Header and Footer - You could create the option to set group for header and footer in all pages (optional field), and have another option for exclude theses header and footer in some pages, such as 1 and the last or any other page between them.
Imagine how easy it would be to assemble profissional pdfs only set the groups and set the header elements and footers. We will don’t need create another page to make PDF 100% customizable. Don’t exist any plugin with that.
In this case, maybe we need think a solution to enumered pages and about quality, as I said in number 1, if the group is small the quality will be low, you will need improve it.
Other thing is the Repeating Group can be automatic split in “body” space keeping the header in the top and footer in the bottom.
4 - Create a option yes or no to set if I need loading asynchronous. Because the workflow continues for next step even Save PDF is loading. I cant make a action after user save your file. If I try send for another page, it interrupt the loading for save the PDF (when my PDF is large to loading).
5 - Create a loading - I’m trying simulate the loading, but I can’t because the workflow continues for next step even Save PDF is loading. So you could create some optional field yes/no to enable some Loading to user know that is working in background. Could be a Popup in the center with animated spin.
6 - Create a option yes or no to make the PDF with texts instead make screen shoots. Such as another plugin that I saw, named “PDF generator”
7 - Create the option yes or no to Working in backend - It is great for large PDFs, in my test 30 pages with 100% width and height with colours and anothes elements make the loading some slow. For user experience is better if it work in background and after the pdf is done in database of bubble, we would can enable the link for user acess the PDF. Or better, we would create the button to user immediately download the PDF that already was make.
There is another plugin that work in backend, you can check.
Conclusion, thanks for the great plugin. I’m looking forward to the news.
