View Full Version : Print content chopped!!!

08-28-2010, 07:47 PM

see here:


The content, when printed is chopped and not flowing onto a second or third page. Viewing the print preview will show you what I mean...

Any ideas how this can be fixed, in a print stylesheet for example.

i believe its down to you having


in div.content_wrapper

also any reason you're using display:inline;? Divs are block by default, should be no real reason to change this. Spans > inline

you can also specify page breaks, which may be useful.

Okay, will look into the overflow:hidden setting..

I use inline for IE6 margin purposes.

How would you specify a page break... been developing for 3 years now, but not for a website purely used to store print content over one page.

Removing the overflow did not seem to work..

You didn't remove it, though.

Apologies, I did - on my local server, try again now.

Now I've mentioned it, it appears to be a common issue accross all of my websites...

Even this one

Cancel that on the Letters to June, just created a print.css and set the content area to width 100% and overflow: visible...

Thanks to those who have helped so far :d
