Generating a PDF via PD4ML cuts off the content



When generating a PDF via PD4ML, content is cut off at the page break.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

Generate a PDF with content extending to a second page.

Root Cause

The issue occurs due to a negative padding value added as an inline style to the element starting at the beginning of a new page. When the page break happens and the element has a negative padding value (in this case top-padding of -14px), the text is moved above and is not visible.


Perform the following local-change: remove the negative padding.
