Force inline or simulate using css on a pdf

I'm using gravitypdf to convert submitted forms into a pdf for printing.
On this form, https://www.injurylaworegon.com/agreement-for-legal-service.htm you can see the section of sign at / date is all on one line. It's using the built-in gf_inline class of gravity forms. When it converts to pdf, the pdf doesn't support the display: inline or display: inline-block. So the printable form shows each one of those fields on its own line instead of a single row.

These are legal forms, so I have to follow the format of their actual paper documents so I can't alter the fields to another look to work with css the pdf does accept.

Does anyone have any ideas of styling the gf_inline class to force them all on one line in the pdf conversion? (I apologize I can't show an example of what the pdf looks like because they're private legal documents and the preview option is only available to the site admins.)

More like the PDF conversion library does not understand the styling - which one are you using?

That I don't know. It's the gravity pdf add-on. When I search for help on the issue, I just keep finding posts that say the inline style is not supported when converting an online form dynamically to a pdf for printing.

Then you have to change your markup to something that uses inline styles - possibly even a table.

It's a gravity form so of course that's not possible either. (maybe the .htm in the link is throwing you off - the site was converted to wordpress a long time ago, but too many pages to 301, so we used a sitewide rewrite to keep the .htm exension.)

Then it sounds like you are stuck with what Gravity Forms can do.

yes - that's why I was hoping to get some thoughts on other css for that gf_inline class to still make it work some. But the lawyer got back to me that it was ok to change the line so I could use the 3 column styling that does work. Thanks for trying.
