Export PDF with section breaks as new pages?

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

Is there any way to either insert a page break or export a paper document with certain lines starting at new pages (besides randomly adding a bunch of blank lines until it looks about right)?

Not at the moment @stoweboyd

As mentioned, I've already logged this as a feature request with the team.

Even though I can't comment whether or not this is going to be implemented, I think it would be very useful for many of our users so thanks for sharing your feedback on this one.

If you have any more questions or feedback, please let me know.

Hey there @meowstlin - how are you today?

From what I understand you're exporting Paper docs to PDF  and you'd like to have some lines in the beginning of your pages.  

I am not sure if this works for you, yet, have you tried inputting line breaks by pressing the dash button 3 times consecutively or just once or twice and then enter.

Give this a go and let me know if it works for you or provide me with some more information (or even screenshots?) to show what exactly you'd like to see impemented. 

Thanks in advance for your response.

Hi @Walter,

I'm not really looking to enter line breaks, but page breaks instead. I understand that these breaks make presentation mode easier. Is there a way to export the presentation mode formate as a pdf? Basically I was hoping that I could export a pdf with specified page breaks, but right now if I do that with the line breaks, the lines just appear in the middle of the page of the pdf.What lines look like on an exported pdfWhat lines look like on an exported pdf

I am also having this same issue - when I try to export Paper to pdf, as I cannot see the page break, it is difficult to know how to fit anything nicely by page. Sometimes there will be a header at the end of the first page & I want to format that the header appears on the second page. 

 

However, currently I have to export to pdf, make a judgement call to make changes then re-export it to see if it is correct.
