add the new inputs into the HTML template just as it's done for pdfTitle 
and pdfNote (see exportPdf/templates/form.tpl).
The naming convention for the new form inputs is:
- capitalize the first letter of the field name
- add the prefix "pdf" in front of it
For instance:
title => pdfTitle
note => pdfNote
foobar => pdfFoobar
