Thanks for the quick response.
Tried Link 1 on ipad and that falls at the first hurdle as PDF is not an option when I choose Save/Send
only options are

Same for the second link - I have that guide so I dont understand what I am doing wrong that the ipad will not generate the pdf.
The script also has to fill in the email address from that record - i dont want to have to type it in in front of them.
I feel so useless at the moment!
Ok i found that I can do it through the print menu on the ipad.
So i am one step closer but that still only creates the pdf and attaches it - the email field is left blank as it is not actually running a script.
Have found the script details in the dev guide.
Works fine on my mac, creates a perfect pdf and emails it no problem.
BUT on the ipad it seems to format as portrait when it creates the pdf so that half the info is lost in the attachment.
Anyway to force landscape pdf creation as there is on the ipad?
Print or page setup can be used to specify page size and orientation for your PDF.
have got this working (after a fashion). There do not apear to be settings within the scripts to specify the size or orientation of the PDF on the ipad but as long as I remember to ensure settings are at 50% zoom and landscape before i run the script it all works fine.
Print Set up is an iOS compatible script step. It should work for specifying at least the orientation.
I was jumping the gun a bit asking for help on stuff that I should be able to work out through tinkering!
Have got it pretty much working now.
