Description Paul Dickson 2007-07-27 22:13:28 UTC
Description of problem:
On a multiple column report that spans at least three pages, gnucash sends
output to printer, pdf, and ps that writes to just one page, incompletely
overwriting the previous pages.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Print report that take more than one page.
Actual results:
All pages get written to same, one, page.

Expected results:
Three pages of output.

Additional info:
I'm attaching the PDF output.

This is likely not a problem with Guncash, but one of its printing libraries.

gnucash uses gtkhtml3 to generate reports to print. What version of gtkhtml3 do
you have installed?

Comment 3 Paul Dickson 2007-08-11 21:11:14 UTC

And I verified that it's still doing it.

Comment 4 Matthew Barnes 2007-08-21 22:31:13 UTC
This should be fixed in gtkhtml3-3.15.90-2.fc8.

I haven't verified it with GnuCash, but I was able to reproduce the same problem
using Evolution and used that to verify the solution.  The same patch also fixes
the extra-blank-page-at-the-end bug that you may have noticed.  See [1] for details.

Feel free to reopen this if GnuCash is still giving you problems.
