Bug Description

Generating a PDF splits the last line of text between two pages. That is the top half of the line of text (character ascenders) is on one page whilst the bottom half ( character decenders) is on the second page.

Thanks for the report! Can you provide an example PDF? Maybe even the input that generated it? If you can only replicate it with private data not meant for launchpad, you can also send it to me via e-mail.

Thanks for the example files. Apparently this is a webkit bug and we will just have to wait for it to be fixed by the webkit devs.

Could you try and export something (that gets split in the PDF export) to HTML, please? Then open the HTML file in Firefox and try printing it (maybe to PDF) there. Does Firefox also cut the text?
