    I solved it

    importFile(this, printAndSaveRecord(this, "My Print Layout"), "mypdf.pdf")

    Can i change  the name between " " with a test in a field? 

    E.g.

    importFile(this, printAndSaveRecord(this, "Allegato Ordine"), 'Fattura N.'.pdf")

    thanks

    Hi Andrea,

     It has to work . What is 'Fattura N.'? A text or a number?

    Hi Andrea,

    'Fattura N.' must not be empty. And if the file already contains a file with the same name, the file will not be created.

    Hi Leo,

    now it works (the problem was the simbol "/" in text field).

     

    Another question: could i use a text field to change the name of a printed pdf, using printRecord?

    I have tried this on the Mac version and it works perfectly, but on the iPad, I just get the spinning wheel and nothing is saved. Anything different we need to do in order to get this to work on the iPad version?

    this is a bug and will (hopefully) be fixed with the next update

    This is helpful, though, what I am trying to do, is similar to one of the beta applications. When the button is clicked, it will save the PDF with a preview to a text image? What is the formula for that?

    Update: the formula will be Image:=importFile(this, printAndSaveRecord(this, "MYVIEW"), "myRecord".pdf")

     

    This works fine with a button, but not so much with a trigger after update. Any suggestions to fix this?

    Any update on a fix?   
    My use case is posting images via the REST/API .. I will post the upload url text... and have an after update trigger that will import the file.

    Any update on this? Looks like this was posted 13 months ago. Would really like to be able to automatically email an attachment following a new or update record trigger (ie. following a Wufoo/Zapier form submit).

    This will not be possible to execute in the onUpdate or onCreate trigger.
