html page breaks does not work using MS Flow to convert to PDF.

I created a html with CSS coding to page-break before <h1></h1> tags. Using print preview, I am able to see the page breaks, however, when I run my flow there is no page break. Any Idea to resolve this issue.

Did you have any success with this issue? 

I  have tried all sorts of arrangments of page-breaks  to no avail.

No update. I tried creating static tables with spacing to mimic a page break but that did not work. As more tables are added, the tables eventually carry over to the next pages in the pdf

Re: html page breaks does not work using MS Flow to convert to PDF.

I was able to get around this a bit by using a Div of a predefined size. 

 

<div id="page" class="page" style = "background-color:#FF00FF; height: 775px; width: 595px;">

 

( terrible colour was for debugging! )

This allowed me to create stand alone pages when I knew the content was going  be less than one page. 

I am currently using a variable to keep track of approximate content height so able to close of the div and start a new one ( like starting a new page ) when it excides a page height. 


Its alot of overhead for something that should be straight forward.

Where do you run that variable? Within the flow or within the html 'string'?
