Section not rendered properly in PDF



User is trying to generate the PDF using 'create PDF' smart shape.

But when the section has dynamic layout or repeating layout,the section is not rendered properly in PDF.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

1. Create a section with dynamic layout and dynamic repeating layout.
2. In flow add 'Create PDF' smart shape with same section.

Root Cause

There is an issue with PD4ML library.

PD4ML library is treating the child div's as block level elements though the parent is styled with "display:inline-block" while the browser interpretation is different.

Due to this, if three text input fields are kept in inline grid 3 (Dynamic layout ), it is rendering in the stacked fashion in the generated PDF.


An enhancement request, FDBK-19486, has been created for consideration by Pega Product Management.
