Downloading printable copies of your forms
On the Design tab, you can download a printable version of any survey form by choosing Download, then Printable version from within the Your forms and datasets list.
The printable version is in HTML (web) format. If you would like to edit the form before printing it, you can save the .html file, open it in Microsoft Word, and Save As a Word (.docx) file.
You can optionally include notes in your printable version, to explain when groups or fields will appear (when they are relevant), what restrictions there are on user entries (what constraints apply), etc. In your form defintion's survey sheet, simply enter your explanations into the note column. All notes in that column will be included in the printable version of your survey (and will not appear anywhere else).
You can also enter text to appear in the response area to the right of questions, by including that text in the response_note column of your form definition's survey sheet. For a text field, for example, you might put something like |___|___| if you are looking for two letters or numbers; or, for a checkbox, you might put a hollow square like □ (this is a special HTML character: enter "□", without the quotes, into the response_note column); and finally, for a radio button, you might simply enter a capital O.
