Export SharePoint list item to PDF

I'm trying to export a single SP list item to PDF on demand, using an export button (for auditing purposes). 

The export should include all list columns, including appended multi line text boxes and attachments as well.

So far all the PDF conversion connectors seem to require a third party subscription (which is not approved by my organization).

 

Is there another connector or method (even if requires more steps) that can achieve the same purpose?

 

Thanks in advance.

I would suggest generating a word template and populate it from your sharepoint list item, save the file and the convert to PDF.

Please check my blog post on how to achieve this:

Thank you. Could you help me understand the first few steps (before populating the Word template) so that I am able to link it to my case and change them accordingly?

@Yousra

Flow?

@Mira_Ghaly  - I meant that I don't understand steps 2 (trigger the flow) through 5 (append to array) so i'm not able to make the link between your use case and mine, in order to adjust the flow to work for me

Your case is much simpler, just design your template by adding plain text content controllers, save the template to sharepoint, then on your sharepoint list choose the option to run a flow and then directly call the Generate word template, you can skip unnecessary steps you don't need
