Incorrect Bottom and Top Margins in the Generated Document



When a pdf document is generated from the Pega OOTB rules, there exists a space between the top of the page and the header. Similarly there exists a space between the bottom of the page and the footer. 

Error Messages

There are no error messages.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a HTML section for footer
  2. Create a HTML section for header
  3. Create a HTML section for body
  4. Call HTMLTOPDF Activity passing those two sections as parameters for pyPDFHeaderHTMLTemplate and pyPDFFooterHTMLTemplate plus the document body

Root Cause

Not Applicable.


It is working as expected, whenever we are exporting any stream to PDF, by default it will take some margins at top, bottom, left and right
