It is an awesome feature to display multi select (Choice) and check boxes inside the document. However it appears vertically. Can I arrange those horizontally?

Thanks, yes, the 'Choice' and 'Checkbox' options are stacked vertically. We will look at providing an option to set the orientation when configuration in the future release.

Update: Good news. Now you can stack the options in Choice or Checkboxes vertically or horizontally by selecting orientation (row/ column)

I am using a date field in my document. In the generated document, I get the date as 2017-05-12T18:30:00.000Z. Is there a way to format it into 05-12-2017.

When I copy the document, the fields configured in add-on are getting reset to 'text' type. How do I copy/ clone the configurations from original document?

A field in my document is not getting rendered correctly when I view the form. What could be the issue?

Check whether your field name contains special characters. Please avoid special characters in the field. Restrict the field size to a maximum of 60 letters. It is better to have letters within 20 characters. If the problem persists, try deleting the field from the document and insert through the add-on (using place icon). If you still face issues, please contact support with screenshots and console logs.

Another Important Note

Please make sure that you do not have single quote (') in your field name as it could break Fillable Document.

For example, change the field name ${Employee's Name} as ${Employee Name}
