Line breaks within tables on PDF export

Matt Ward Mar 19, 2015

Trying to get PDF exports to break long lines within table columns so that all text within the table shows up.

1] Create new page with 3 column table

2] Paste 'abcdefghijklnmopqrstuvwxyzabcdefghijklnmopqrstuvwxyzabcdefghijklnmopqrstuvwxyz' into each column

3] Export to PDF


I've tried customizing the PDF Export stylesheet, to no avail.

body, p, li, td, table, tr, .bodytext, .stepfield {
word-wrap: break-word;
word-break: break-all;
.wiki-content p {
word-wrap: break-word;
word-break: break-all;


Any ideas?
