    Maybe I'm missing something, but is there a way to print out the resume submissions when the person has not included an attachment? I don't see any way to do that. I'm happy to create a template for it but not seeing any way to apply one.

    There is an "Export Submission" box on the right while viewing the submission. You can download to PDF and then print or you can print the web page directly.

    Thanks for your reply, I see the button now.

    When I tried this out the PDF was unformatted and loaded with special characters. Here's a sample (with the submitter's info changed for privacy):

    This was the worst I saw. Others were a bit better -- they printed without the odd characters -- but none of the submissions in PDF version had line breaks, the text just ran together in one text block.

    This was downloaded using Mac OS 10.8.4 and Safari 6.0.5. BTW.

    Is there a way to turn on a WYSIWYG editor for the submissions? As it it now it's easier to just copy/paste the info from the form field which is not the best way of reviewing the info.

    OK did a bit of testing and I see that if you compose the resume submissions properly the line breaks are there. Still had a problem with special chars, but not too bad if the resume submitter has a clue ;)

    So it's mainly a problem with the cut & pasters out there. Could there be something in the way of a solution in forcing character coding in some of the PHP? Be happy to try a hack if you think something might work out.

    For those characters, I don't think the built in WYSIWYG is smart enough to remove them. That is just one of the problems with allowing users to use WYSIWYGs instead of plain textareas.
