Formialt Universal Template: How to Install and Configure

Two A4 pieces of paper stacked on top of each other. Both are printed copies of PDFs generated using Gravity PDF and Formialt.

Formialt is a premium PDF template with rounded corners, robust color control, and compact design. You can purchase it from our PDF Template Shop. This guide will walk you through installing and configuring Formialt to its full potential.


As a Universal PDF template, Formialt can be used with all Gravity Forms and will correctly display any official Gravity Forms fields. Because the design is a fixed two-column layout, Drag and Drop columns are not supported.


Please follow our installation guide, which provides instructions for setting up and configuring your premium template.


All PDF templates have common settings that can be configured, such as font, security and PDF attachments, and we recommend reviewing the PDF setup guide to get a better understanding on all the available settings. All template-specific configuration is done from the Template section and below you'll find detailed information about each option available in Formialt, what it does and how it alters the generated PDF.

Main Heading

  • The main heading is left-aligned and included on the first page of your PDF, before any of your Gravity Forms fields. Merge tags are supported.
  • The Main Heading background will use the Heading Background Color, while the font color will be set to black or white, depending on the best contrast.
  • Leave the field blank to disable.

Heading Background Color

  • The Heading Background Color is used for the Main Heading and Section Break Title.
  • The default color is Mountbatten Pink (hex #9e7b9b).

Field Background Color

  • The Field Background Color is used for all Gravity Forms fields except the HTML and Page fields, as well as the Section Break Description (which don't have a background).
  • The field font color will be set to black or white, depending on the best contrast.
  • The default color is Dove Gray (hex #666666).

Additional Settings

Along with the options specific to Formialt, the following core settings are also supported:

Formialt comes packaged with the open source sans-serif font, Roboto, which was designed by Christian Robertson, an interface designer for Google. For the best results, we recommend using Roboto at 10pt. Set the PDF font in the Appearance section.

Viewing PDF

Once you've saved your new PDF, you can view it from the Gravity Forms Entries List page.
