For anyone familiar with E2PDF and Formidable, would it be possible to place an [e2pdf_save] short code within the custom html of a submit button field? My objective is to save PDFs automatically since each form entry can be overwritten. Thanks for any feedback on this.

Can you solve your issue by using do_shortcode in the frm_after_create_entry hook to do the save? Remember to use the "apply" attribute as it's required when calling e2pdf-save from do_short_code.

Thanks Rob! I'll have to try this. I had been considering the use of the do_shortcode but I wasn't sure where to apply it. Just to clarify the frm_after_create_entry and its do_shortcode with the apply attribute setting would be placed in a WPCode snippet?

frm_after_create_entry is a hook, so you'll want to following the directions here https://formidableforms.com/knowledgebase/formidable-hooks/ (short answer, yes you can use WPCode)
