PDF Export Spitting Reports along Page Lines

There are some weird formatting issues with the default PDF export when exporting dashboards.

Attached are 3 examples, with the settings. I changed the setting so that it would Fit to Page, but it looks like some of the titles are formatting weirdly, with larger bold text instead of smaller text, as well as the large numbers looking very narrow.

But the most important thing in these exports is that the Report is being split down the middle between two pages.

HI Alexander,

Thanks for reaching out to support with your issue.

What is the goal here? Landscape? Portrait? Let's focus on that issue.

For Landscape spillover, sounds like there's an option for that - can you check to see how this toggle impacts -

And for "Fit to page" or the skinny titles, there may be some formatting not coming through. I'd check to see if the font is different for example.

There can be some nuances to PDF output that can make pixel-perfect output difficult, but usually there are ways to set things up in a way that works.

Thanks,

Eric

Eric,

It doesn't look like I have those options. This is what I'm getting from the Export Defaults - Export Plugin for Dashboard -

We're going for Portrait Letter.

Hi Alexander,

Thanks for the reply. I can see we have this page break option for reports, but not dashboards yet it looks like.

I can make a request to get this functionality implemented in a future version. Does this sound like the desired solution here?

Could you test this functionality with a report canvas vs a dashboard to see if this function works for you at the report level at least?

Thanks,

Eric

Looks like that functionality is good when exporting via Report.

Yes, we would like that functionality for Dashboard exports, I think that's the desired solution here.

Thanks,

Hi Alex,

Thanks for the reply.I've gone ahead and created a developer task to look into adding this functionality to a future version of the application. I've attached this ticket to the task and added your organization as an affected client for tracking purposes. Updates to the task will be provided here as they are available. I'll mark this as Idea Logged for now; feel welcome to reply here with any related inquiries.

Thanks,

Eric
