PDF Export: Word-wrap


Exporting part of a space to PDF, text formatted as hyperlinks breaks randomly at the end of a line. (For example, the link text Source: BBC breaks after the first B, leaving just the letters BC on the next line).

I have tried editing the PDF stylesheet, but

div { 
    word-wrap: normal; 

doesn't make any difference. My aim is to stop word breaks occuring at all.

I think this is the same problem as described at https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-26230

I have also had problems with word breaks but haven't really tried to solve them. Perhaps you want to try the proposed workaround and give your feedback here.

Thank you, that sorted it. For the benefit of anyone else who has this problem, it seems to be

.wiki-content p {
    word-wrap: normal;

which sorted it. My stylesheet already had a variation of

body, p, li, td, table, tr, .bodytext, .stepfield {
    word-wrap: normal;

but that didn't resolve the error.

Something went wrong with my pdf reader. I wanna convert pdf to text first. Any suggestion will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
