Page break preview for exported PDF


We are trying to use the Kendo Jquery spreadsheet but are running across some issues in terms of setting up for printing and/or exporting to PDF.


Currently, we let the user modify the spreadsheet to suit their needs.  The problem is there is no way to see page breaks at this time...that we know of.  The users stretch columns and row to suit their needs but the only way to see if they 'broke' across a page is to export to pdf to see...


We would like one or two options...

1. We know what our page size is - 8 1/2 x 11.  Is there a way to fix the max size of the spreadsheet so it's 1 page wide?  If the user inserts columns then the other columns just get smaller and smaller - proportionally - but ultimately the sheet is as only as wide as 1 page...


2. The ability to see where the page breaks are so they can set up the sheet correctly.


Please let me know if one of these options is feasible or are we stuck?


Thank you

Jeffrey Suffet

Hello Jeffrey,

Currently the Spreadsheet widget does not provide support for page-breaks preview. It also could not automatically calculate the width of the columns in the Sheet to respect the exported PDF width. That is why I have converted the current thread to a feature request in our Feedback portal. Here you will find the converted public item. I would suggest you to cast your vote for it. Based on the support it receives from the community, we will decide on whether to proceed with its implementation or not.
