Multi-Page Content

The PDF Processing component provides options for generating multi-page content in PDF, preventing the page-split, and rendering page templates.

For more information on how to render multi-page content with the Drawing library, refer to its PDF output documentation.

Manual Page Breaking

To manually specify the page breaks, use the forcePageBreak property. As a result, a page break, which matches the forcePageBreak CSS selector, occurs before each element.

The following example demonstrates how to split the content into multiple pages.

Automatic Page Breaking

The PDF Processing component supports automatic page breaking. To automatically insert page breaks, set the paperSize option. You will still be able to apply the forcePageBreak configuration to manually specify the break points.

For more information, refer to the known limitations of the Drawing library and the PDF Export component.

Page Templates

When you request multi-page output through the forcePageBreak or paperSize options, you can additionally specify a pageTemplate. The page template is inserted into each page before the output is produced and you can position it relatively to the page by using CSS.

Preventing Page Breaking in Elements

To prevent specific elements from being split across pages, use the keepTogether option. keepTogether accepts CSS selectors that are passable to querySelector.

All elements from the following example which have the "prevent-split" CSS class are kept within the boundaries of the pages and their content is not split. If they fall on a margin, they will be moved to the next page.

For more information on existing issues in element behavior during page breaking, refer to the article about known limitations and browser support.
