Hello @all,

When exporting a PDF the sections are being positioned underneath each other, when exporting a single page.

Could anyone tell me how to avoid this? In my case i get a PDF where the resulting "column" of the sections is very slim and 2/3 of the page width are white.

Thanks a lot

Hi Michael,

I believe you can do this using some Advanced PDF Customizations with CSS.

Hope it helps!


I already tried some modifications on this way. I even was successful, but not in the section theme....

A CSS code for an excample would be perfect.

Thanks a lot,


I guess you want columns that appear side by side instead of underneath each other!? (The section itself doesn't do anything and is just a container for the columns inside of it)

At https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/196798/how-to-preserve-columns-sections-when-exporting-to-pdf you find the CSS that I use and that works for me. Seems that it doesn't work for everyone though...
