One thing to check:
You set page size, orientation and other options for Save As PDF using print set up just as though you are going to print. So select the options that you need in print setup, then check the layout in layout mode and preview mode to see what you get. The precise "printable area" on a given page can vary from printer to printer and printer driver to printer driver so you need to make sure that you have the right settings before you check to see where page breaks will fall on your layout.
Appreciate your reply, but in this case the "printer" is the PDF itself.
I've messed with the print setup, but it looks like I'm just going to have to spend time on this where FMP should be figuring this out (FMP Internals: Hey, this is a graphic and it won't all fit on the current page ... let's start a new page, etc.). If I were coding this in iText, I could do a better job than FMP is doing now. At least for what I'm expecting (reasonable assumptions and placement, respecting page breaks, ...)
Thanks again Phil.
We try to do this before anything that we save a pdf. Too many times we had portrait reports printing in landscape and vice versa.
Do you set "use fixed page margins" in "Layout setup" > "print" ?
If you don't, the result of "Save as PDF" differs according to printer in "Print setup"
