Description Kaylx 2012-06-22 06:11:42 PDT
Upgraded from Qt 4.7.4 to Qt 4.8.2 to find that page breaks in our html when printed to pdf format are no longer taken into account and seem to be ignored.

Printing QWebView with QPrinter::PdfFormat
HTML uses CSS styles "page-break-before:always;" and "page-break-after:always;"

See attached example TestReport.zip.

Comment 4 Adrian Jäkel 2013-07-02 07:24:58 PDT
Still existing in Qt 4.8.5. Im relying on page breaks for printing reports in my application so unfortunately because of this bug i still have to use outdated Qt 4.7 :(
Comment 5 Adrian Jäkel 2013-07-02 09:10:12 PDT
Is there any chance to find the breaking changes for this? I tried to look through the code but this hard without a starting point. Were there some major webkit changes between 4.7 and 4.8 ?
