Avoid breaking images
wrote on 2014-08-14:
I have a procedurally generated HTML view getting converted to PDF using the pdfcrowd API for PHP. The HTML contains tabular data. The first cell contains a small image that acts as a grade for that particular row. Currently, the generator will break the grade image if it needs to apply a page break. Is there something I can do to tell the API to basically allow X lines in a cell before allowing a page break inside the table?
I do NOT want to avoid page breaks inside of the table rows altogether. This can lead to large empty spaces in the PDF since some rows can be exceptionally longer than others.
What I would really like is to tell the API something like this:
cell 1 - OK to break below image cell 2 - OK to break below title cell 3 - OK to break after 4 lines of text cell 4 - OK to break after 4 lines of text
I think I can manipulate the HTML to achieve this, but if there is an easier way through the API, please let me know.

Unfortunately, there is no support for anything like that in the API. The only thing that could help is to use the following css to avoid page breaks inside images.
