Manual paging support?

See original GitHub issue

I jump into a problem currently: set paging manually Eg: (assume I predefined page size, as options width and height). I have 2 chapters, I need each chapter to be placed on separate pages. If chapter 1 height > options.height then it will render 2 pages, 1st page is full of content, 2nd page is remaining content, the rest is blank. Chapter 2 will start from 3rd page.

How can we solve this problem? I gonna modify native code but I’m not familiar with Objective C

@dzuncoi Using CSS seems to work for page breaks on iOS and Android.

Disclaimer: I am not a CSS or HTML expert and this may be bad or wrong advice.

const cssStyleSheet = `
<style type="text/css" >
div.img {
    display: block;
    width: auto;
    height: auto;
    page-break-before: auto; 
    page-break-after: auto; 
    page-break-inside: avoid;     
img {
  page-break-before: auto; 
  page-break-after: auto; 
  page-break-inside: avoid; 

let html = `<!DOCTYPE html><head><title>${}</title>${cssStyleSheet}</head>`;
htmlText += '<h1>This is Page One</h1';
htmlText += pageBreakWithPageNumberBefore();
htmlText += '<h1>This is Page Two</h1';
let _globalPageNumber = 0;
function pageBreakWithPageNumberBefore() {
  _globalPageNumber += 1;
  return `<p style="page-break-before: always;" align=center>Page ${_globalPageNumber}</p>`;

Question: Any advice on how to make PDF generate as landscape on Android?

I have it working on iOS but Android stays in portrait.

Perhaps Android has different units for page size?

This works on iOS

const options = {
    height: 800, /* Optional: 800 sets the height of the DOCUMENT that will be produced, Default: 612 */
    width: 1056, /* Optional: 1056 sets the width of the DOCUMENT that will produced, Default: 792 */
    padding: 24 /* Optional: 24 is the # of pixels between the outer paper edge and

@esutton A PR would be great! We can expose an option to set the document size and default to A4.

You should be able to open one up directly from your forked repo.
