Border issue of a layout in generated PDF



Section has a border in the inline style which is designed to display the section as a table. A PDF is generated from this section.
If a large quantity of text data is entered in to a cell to extend the cell over multiple pages, the border is not generated at the page borders (within the cell data).

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Configure a section with a border in the inline style which is designed to display the section as a table.
  2. Enter data in a cell such that the cell spreads between two pages.
  3. Generate a PDF from this section.

Root Cause

This issue was determined to be a product enhancement request.


H ere's the explanation for the reported behavior: The cell cannot be spread between two pages when using the new PD4ML JAR file. The pyEnableSmartPagebreaks avoids clipping the content to the next page. However, it does not border each page.
