Dynamic Layout Render Issue in pxCreatePDF



Dynamic Layouts are not getting rendered properly in a section passes as a parameter to pxCreatePDF activity or in CreatePDF smart shape.

Error Messages

No Error message. System behavior is incorrect.

Steps to Reproduce

1. Create A section having dynamic layout.
2. Insert some text inputs.
3. Pass the section into pxCreatePDF activity which attaches the section as PDF to the work object. Observe the output.


The explanation for this behavior is as follows:

For PDF conversion dynamic layouts with double or triple are not supported, because such dynamic layouts are handled by CSS which is not exported to PDF. This is known limitation. 

Dynamic components must be removed or replaced with static elements prior to calling HTMLToPDF.
