Export to PDF not respecting page breaks

I have a layout I use as a monthly report to a client. That layout has graphs and other text fields which look great in FMP. That is, the page breaks are all above or below each item.

 

Yet, when I export that same layout to PDF, graphs split across pages and the general export is so messed up I spend hours trying to fix it each time I add a new item to the report (and change the spacing).

 

So, my questions are these:


1. Am I missing something beyond having view page margins and view page breaks enabled and making sure everything fits in there (doesn't cross a page break boundary?) for a proper export?

 

2. If this is just how "FMP works", then why isn't the PDF export ... smarter? That is, if the page breaks are correct in FMP, then why aren't they respected on the PDF output?  Again, I could be missing something, but I don't think I should need to spend hours trying to get the export correct (no ugly breaks across pages) if everything is correct within the FMP layout.

 

I'm using FMPA 14.

 

Would appreciate suggestions.

 

TIA
