    is it possible to customize the design of pdf output – by applying some CSS?

    when i use display : none; the pdf file gets messy

  19. FYI, I had an 'oh duh' moment where this wasn't working because the '$' wasn't defined. So make sure you have JQuery enabled as another script:
    <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
