Is the print preview of your supplement/common app the actual format the colleges see? Because for one college, a part of my writing was cut off even though I had not exceeded the word limit in print preview.
After printing my application in PDF, some fields I have filled in on the application are blank, and others are not displaying the entire text.
The PDF version of your application may not display some of your answers correctly. As long as they are saved to your application properly, they will be saved in the institution's database properly, even if they are not displaying correctly (or at all) on the PDF. You may want to check the pages of your application carefully before you submit it to ensure that your answers were saved properly.
