Styling Checkboxes for PDF output

    Hello! We are using Spread.NET to view/edit spreadsheet as well as export them to PDF. When looking at the spreadsheets in HTML, the checkboxes look great and work great, but when exporting to PDF, the checkboxes become tiny little black squares that are not useful and you cannot tell if they are checked or not. We are using Spread 11. Any idea on how better to style the checkbox elements before exporting to PDF to make them more useful in the PDF? Thank you!

    Hi,
    We tried to export the PDF with CheckBoxes at our end using the following demo sample and it works as expected.

    Please find the attached PDF file for reference.

    Thank you Manish! Is this using the latest version of Spread.NET? We are currently using version 11. Would we have to update to the latest version to get the checkboxes looking good? Could you test with Spread.NET 11? Thank you!

    Hi Dough,
    We have tried the same with the Spread 11.0.20183.0 version and the PDF gets exported correctly.
    If you would like to get the above version, please download it from here:
    https://cdn.grapecity.com/SpreadNET/installer/11.0.20183.0/offlineDownload_ComponentsOnly.zip

    Please refer to the attached exported PDF. PDFSpread-11.zip
