When printing issue cards with an added descriptions field, the description text gets cut off

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Customizing cards

When adding the description field to the card and then printing it, the text of the description runs off to the side of the card instead of being wraped around to the next line. Is this a bug or is it working as specified? Sure looks like a bug.

Hi Michael,

I assume that you've probably managed to solve this problem already, but if not perhaps you'd like to try Agile Cards for JIRA?
Our add-on allows users to design their card layout flexibly, providing full control over exactly which fields from the original issue (also where and in what order) appear on the final printouts.

Hope this helps.

We have this problem in JIRA software server 7.3. too and it will be very helpful if the description does not run off to the side of the cards. 

Looks really like a bug. 

Same problem with 7.2.4 - clearly a bug.

Any news about this bug? I'm not eager to pay for plugin to have features which should be obvious.
