    I created a form in fabrik to insert various data regarding the customer master data,
    now I need to create, starting from these data, letters to send to customers ...
    For example:

    Dear Customer
    (Record_Name) (Record_Surname)

    Is it possible to do this with fabrik? or even with another component ...

    "Specially formatted": create a custom template (details or list, depending on what you want to do)
    "Few records from a table":
    Create a custom list template (use the div template as starting point), select this template in list PDF settings.
    Filter your list and click PDF

    2nd possibility:
    Create a custom details template, select it in form PDF settings.
    Add the "download" plugin to your list, enable "download PDFs"
    Then you can select several records, click the Download icon in your list header, this will give you a zip with PDFs

    I'm trying to make a custom fabrik template (PDF), how do I go about having a single record in the master table for example?

    I tried this:

    <? php echo $ element = $ this-> groups ['registry'] -> elements ['client_name']; ?>

    but unfortunately it gives me an error, most likely I'm wrong ...
