I’m hitting a wall trying to troubleshoot this, so I’m kindly asking for help or even just ideas, what could be wrong.
I needed to add barcodes to certain PDF Templates and planned on using mPDF’s tag, which would fit my needs perfectly. However as I tried to add the tag in PDF Template editor, the editor (TinyMCE) would strip it out. When I skipped the editor and added the tags directly to database recods of the templates, they’d work fine, but I can’t change the templates in editor without readding the tags to database.
I ran accross this issue which matches what I’m experiencing, but that was fixed long ago. I even checked and modules/AOS_PDF_Templates/views/view.edit.php matches that of the pull request fixing the issue, so it should be ok. There is no custom version of the said file either. Any ideas what could be wrong?
I’m running running SuiteCRM 7.11.8 on LAMP stack (Debian 10 & MariaDB). The SuiteCRM installation has been around since 7.2.1, so there are probably still old settings and files lying around and causing this. I just can’t figure out where to look for them - or what to look for.
I never found a fix to it. IIRC I did come to a conclusion that the problem wasn’t with mPDF but it had to be something either tinymce or the save function was doing. But since the need to update templates is quite rare I decided to spend my energy elsewhere and just add the tags directly to database entries as occasionally needed.
