So I have discovered that automating a PDF into an attachment field is not possible from page designer at the moment. I was curious if anyone has found a way to view their page designer block in an interface? If not I will have to go back to the "data" side of the base and move it over to an attachment field and then go back into the interface. I think if I could just view the page designer in an interface I could screenshot the page and drop it into an attachment field without leaving the interface.
Not really a page designer element, but there's a workaround using a hidden interface in your app. Just style the interface the way you want and make a button to go to that interface. Users can print that page directly in the interface. Just the best approximation I could find without having to give users permission to the base data.
It just seems so silly. They have built an interface inside the data "Page Designer" then rolled out an interface that doesn't support the ONLY pdf format available through the program. The fact that Mini extensions had a solution for this right as it rolls out is interesting. Maybe Airtable should purchase their dev team as they seem to understand real problems people have.
