queXML Export to PDF without dotted lines between answer boxes

5 years 1 month ago #142930 by aldzion
I am having a problem with the export of my limesurvey questionaire using queXML. We want to print out a questionaire, that we created in limesurvey, then scan it and use Remark to get the data into tabular form for later analysis.
Unfortunately Remark seems to have a problem with the (dotted) lines that queXML puts between the answer boxes for each question, when exporting to PDF. Is there any way to turn them off?

Thanks for your advice

It's not a LimeSurvey problem, but rather a PDF printing problem.

First Google results for "pdf character printing":


Yes, I mentioned that printing "as image" works.

. I opened the PDF document, checked in File, Properties, Font and figured out which font the document was created/updated with and then downloaded that font to my computer.

QueXML export is functionality maintained outside of LimeSurvey. Check at quexf.acspri.org.au/quex-suite for information on how to change the rendering of the survey to PDF.

You can also try to output just the print preview if you will not use the quex suite to scan and interpret the forms. But regular print output for a survey might be difficult to recognize.

The queXML questionnaire is created to be used and scanned with queXML....
