Extraneous Page Break Inserted When Printing a Form with IE RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a form that I need to print on one page. Here's my current CSS:

    @media print {     div#formcontainer {display: block;}
        form { font-size-adjust: .4;}
        textarea {width: 98%;}
        body {background-color: #ffffff;}
        a {color: #000000;}
        .page-break    { display: block; page-break-before: always; }
        .address {width: 92%}

    The page is printed via window.print() when a button is clicked.
    This works in every browser I've tried, except IE (currently running IE 11. In IE, the Zoom

    shrinks the form so it fits on one page width wise, but it inserts a page break where it would

    normally put it if I didn't use the Zoom. I also loose the centering of the text at the top.

    I've tried using height and page-break-inside: avoid parameters, but no luck. Any help in

    solving this problem would be greatly appreciated.

  • Hi jweinberg244,

    Different browsers handle some issues automatically, but differently. Shrink to Fit helps a little bit but does not handle all issues. There may be several issues in the browser. We could check it in the link below

    For the CSS, we also could check the format for print: @media from the link.

    If it doesn’t work, I suggest that we could ask for help from the IE development forum.
