I am trying to get my PDF formatted the right way. On the picture you can see on the left, how it should look like (screenshot from Nintex Forms) and on the right the output from Nintex Document Generation.
For the date field, I already tried various options that are available within the Nintex Document Tagger. But the options available do not fit my requirements.
Has anyone an idea? Or is this a current product restriction?
Thanks for your support,

When using a date field and selecting a format within the tagger unfortunately it will always add the time to the end which is obviously not what you want. Having said that there is a workaround which does require an extra action in the workflow, this is how you can do it:
Let me know how you go..
Thanks! This worked perfectly for my case
Have a nice weekend,
Rick De Marco - what about the currency formatting mentioned by Dominik above?
I am having this same problem, where I have many SharePoint currency columns set to use 2 decimal places. But when these are output via document generation, they end up with only 1 decimal place for example, "2000.00" is rendered as "2000.0". Note that does not occur if the 2 decimals are non-0. For example a value of of "2000.98" is rendered properly in Doc Gen as "2000.98" and a value of "2000.50" is still rendered as "2000.5".
I know as a work-around I could do the same thing that you suggested for the dates... that is save the number to a text based variable and reference the variable in Doc Gen instead of the source item property. But I'd prefer to avoid creating lots of additional text variables unless I really need to.
Tom, did you ever find another solution?
