Thread: Bug with PDF rendering ?

  1. #1

    Default Bug with PDF rendering ?


    I have a report with one group. "Page break before" is enabled on the group header. The web/excel/word format is ok. The pdf one fails on the last page : everything is printed but the header ... what could be the problem ?

    (version is 3.0.0)

    Could it be that your last groups contents just filled the space of the previous page so that a second page was needed?

    After all, Web/Excel/Word do not have a notion of pages, so every "sheet" is as large as it has to be to fit all the content into it. PDF on the other hand has only a fixed size paper and thus once that one is filled will start a new one. The manual breaks can create *additional* pagebreaks, but cannot prevent the automatic ones.

    If you want to have the group header on every page, set the "repeat" flag for the header to true.
