Blank pages when using page breaks

    App builder page breaks only add page breaks when outputting to a standard pdf (not a designer). Yes, any designer added page breaks will show whether there is content or not. You will find more quirkiness in your future. Like section headers breaking away from the content across page breaks. Is what it is.. until they make improvements. You can use things like character limits to force content to one page. Personally, while it isn't the most visually appealing, I just removed the forced page breaks and have resigned to just allow it to happen.

    If it is really important that a pdf look a certain way, for a fee, GoCanvas will build you a custom output.

    Howdy Jon,

    There was! Our Product Team implemented some updates to the PDF Designer to address the blank pages issue earlier last year. Now, blank pages should not show up in the PDF Designer for fields with no input (depending on PDF Visible settings in the App Builder).

    If you are still encountering issues with blank pages after making changes to your Designer PDF, we would advise submitting a ticket so our Support Team can take a look and troubleshoot.

    Canvas will make promises they can't keep. Unless it is a simple form don't waste your time.

    Hi Glen,

    I'm sorry you're having trouble with GoCanvas and, specifically, the PDF Designer/PDF output. I've been in touch with our Support Team about the issue you're experiencing and will continue to monitor the ticket to make sure it is resolved.

    Was there ever a resolution for this? I am running into the same issue. I need to do page breaks but we don't always need the same information which I need to have an option to remove the blank pages this creates.
