How to avoid Save as PDF causing cut images and text?

When using the Save as PDF functionality

sometimes images get cut in half:

as well as text (which can be seen in this this doc):

Any hacks/tricks to avoid this?

Potential Solutions

  1. A page feed / pagebreak character I could pass right before one of those headers (e.g. right before Ford Park Alternative Entrance) [NOTE: Coda team indicates this is a standalone feature request and would need to be evaluated as such)
  2. Pagebreak indicators in my Coda docs. This way I could manually add linebreaks until there were no more cut off images. Hacky, but not too bad, doesn’t require rendering a pdf after every change (which is too slow).

Other ideas?

Hi @Connor_McCormick :slight_smile:
I like you idea of a definition of which content should go in which pages in the pdf, and an interline (like the — string) would be a super good solution!
The next step i’d like would be, once defined those section of the pages, choose dinamically which one i want to export in the pdf and which not.

This would be super useful in generating report or in applying styles or different layout to the pdf’s (i was thinking at a standard basic report vs an advanced one, now you need 2 different pages or some tricky solution, this feature could be a game changer!) :slight_smile:

+1 this.

Need a way to control line breaks through the page. Or at least have cards etc not being cut in half by a page break.

FYI all,

Discovered that Coda tends to insert page breaks when it cannot fit a Details view into the rest of the running page. So encompassing content into Detail views is currently one workaround to force new pages:

Pretty useful, but I imagine it’s not possible to insert a Details view into the middle of a formula?

No but you can insert a formula into a Details view :slight_smile:

Doesn’t really work in my case. Need to split pages in the middle of a formula
