one option is to use javascript. The idea is outlined here:,592,595#msg-595

I have just encountered this same problem. I have a very long table which spans two pages and when it is converted to a pdf the rows do not break cleanly.

I have tried using the javascript solution posted here but I am still getting an ugly row split.

I have attached the file i am calling to do the PDF conversion.

The URL that produces the page that I want to convert is

Any help or pointers gratefully received.

Please post the HTML with the long table and we will take a look at why it does not work with pdfcrowd.js

Hello, there are several issues that prevent splitting your tables correctly. One of them is that pdfcrowd.splitTable() does not support tables containing the <thead> element at the moment. We will take a look at it to see what can be done about it.

Update: We added support for "page-break-inside:avoid", the javascript workaround is not needed anymore. Try to add the following to your stylesheet:
td,th { page-break-inside: avoid; }
