Page break macro does not work when using sections


I made a cockpit in Confluence and use multiple page layout/sections to align the information. Now I want to print the cockpit to PDF. To control the page breaks in the PDF I use the page-break macro. I use the browsers print option - and not the 'export to PDF' since this does not work when using JIRA-gadgets. Also other suggestions mentioned in the Atlassian answers section do not work (HTML embed).

The usecase to reproduce the problem is depicted below:


Besides a disturbed layout after saving, the printout is just a single page.

Does anybody know a solution / workaround for this?

Are you sure the capitalization of "Pagebreak" is the same between the macro and the CSS?

I'll ask the tool admin to check this. But if I replace the macro with <div id="pagebreak" style="page-break-before:always;"></div> using the HTML macro in my page it does not work.

When inspecting the HTML sourcecode I replace the <div id="pagebreak" style="page-break-before:always;"></div> statement between the columnlayout class and then it works. So it seems that page-breaks embedded in the <div class="columnLayout"> < /div>  section do NOT work.

So that brings me to the question: how do I embed a page-break between these sections while using the editor?
