One large image builds in PDF output; another does not

This image appears just fine in HTML output and in PDF output from Prince. This image is 2,162 x 446 px.

However, this image appears in HTML output just fine but is missing in PDF output. There's just a blank space on the page and on the following page. This image is 2,144 x 1,173 px.

Why did the image simply not go to the next page? Is there a maximum height or width image size limit for PDF generation? The first image (which works) is wider than the second image (which doesn't); however, the second image is taller (but certainly not taller than the PDF page...or is it?).

I would appreciate any help with this.

Thanks for the bug report.

Unfortunately we still have some problems with column flex containers. We're working towards a solution, but in the meantime a possible workaround would be to put 'display:block' on the <body> element. Please let us know if that doesn't work for you.


This isn't going to work for my implementation. My Jekyll template is built by using
...unless there's a way for me to somehow only do this for PDF output. Do you know if this can be profiled somehow?

Hi MK,

You can use media queries to ensure that only print is affected, as follows:
@media print {
    body { display: block !important; }

Alternatively, if you can't include custom CSS in your template, you might be able to use the '-s' option on the Prince command line to include the extra CSS.

Thank you, markbrown—this is exactly what I needed! :)
