    Converting schema data to a PDF document is done with the Word activity.  This allows you to create any formatted document you need, not just a view of an eform.  The Word is very powerful and easy to use.  Are you having trouble with it?

    Hi, thanks for the answer. I know that it's possible to create a PDF using the Word activity. In this specific case, the form has a lot of fields and some of them is "Drawing Control" with a signature. I'm not sure that it's possible to use word template and map to one of the fields bynary object...

    Hopefully, this will be available in an update soon.  In the meantime, you can make the screen where the person signs the form, or anther screen with the drawing control on it, the report view screen.  You can then give anyone who needs to see the completed and signed form, the link to that report view screen.  This link can even be stored in a database or SharePoint list.  After all, PDF files and paper is so yesterday!

    Did you have any issues getting the text to carry over to the word document. I configured the Word Activity process activity and it works but it seems to be cutting off the first line of the text fields I map over. Notice 'this' is missing when mapped to word document.
