How to add page numbers and page breaks to pdf via flow

I am just wondering if there is any option to add page breaks and page numbers when using convert to pdf action in flow.  I have have flow with following actions.

- Get Sharepoint item,

- Create file in sharepoint  xxx.html with content from the previous action

- Convert to Pdf

- Create file xxx.pdf - content from last step.

- Delete the xxx.html file.

 

I have tried add page break via css but it does not show in the pdf generated.

Hi @ahmednaseem ,

 

I have made a test on my side and I'm afraid that there is no any way to add page numbers and breaks to pdf with Microsoft flow currently.

Hey @v-alzhan-msft @ahmednaseem 

Apologies for picking up an old thread... I've found this whilst helping another user on this same topic today.

@v-alzhan-msft  - Totally agree you cannot do this with the Onedrive connector However, it is possible in Power Automate using a third party connector such as Plumsail or Encodian which provide full HTML / CSS support.

A workaround exists to generate a PDF with more than one pages by using CSS and the OneDrive connector:
