  • Page breaks between orders in the batch?

    I swear I've seen this question asked a zillion times but trying to search for it comes up with one or two results that won't help. How can a page break be inserted so that each order within a batch will print out on it's own page?

    Thanks!

        New installs it definitely is, there's some older installs that missed it and some occasional Browser issues.

          How can I tell if it "missed it"?

            You should have a div with an id of order containing each order (using the printable invoice)

            The CSS should look like this:

            Code:
            .order {
                text-align: left;
                width: 690px;
                padding: 20px;
                page-break-after: always;
            }
            The page-break-after is the important attribute there.

              Looks like it's going to wind up being a browser issue. Thanks ya'll!

                Is it Safari by chance? It's been a while (probably since shipping DVD's last year) but I vaguely recall always bumping into this on my Mac with Safari and then switching to Chrome or FF to print them.
                Thanks,

                  It is also worth noting that the parent element (<div id="order">) cannot have a float on it for page-break-after to work.

                  http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4...n-all-browsers

                  Other things that can break page-break are: using page-break inside tables, floating elements, inline-block elements, and block elements with borders.

                    When I run the "Printable Invoice" batch report, it doesn't print with page breaks between orders. I checked the template:

                    Code:
                    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
                    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
                    <head>
                    <title>&mvte:page:name;</title>
                    <style type="text/css"><mvt:item name="inline_css" /></style>
                    </head>
                    <body>
                    
                    <mvt:foreach iterator="order" array="admin_order:orders">
                        <div class="order">
                            <div class="title-box-left">
                    etc

                    I checked the CSS, and the "order" style has "page-break-after:always;" just like the above post.

                    I'm using the original, un-edited template, and I've tried both IE8 and Firefox, and no go. (Incidentally, when I try to run the batch report in IE10, the whole page reloads, bringing me back to the main Admin page.)

                    What could possibly be going wrong?

                      If you have an inspection tool in FF, right click (Inspect Element or Inspect with FireBug) near the top of the Batch Report output and locate one of the class="orders" div. See if the Page-break-after is somehow suppressed by some other code.

                        Thanks for the tip. I checked, and there was a "float" I hadn't seen. But even after taking it out, it still doesn't print right. :/

                        Here's a screen cap of the code.

                          just for fun (actually to rule out possible overwrites) add the following to the template <head> area:

                          <style>
                          @media print
                          {
                          div.orders {page-break-after:always}
                          }
                          </style>

                            May want to try:

                            page-break-after:always !important;

                              Great! That works in IE8 and IE10, which is what my order processing co-workers use. So that's all set for day-to-day use. Thanks a ton!

                              However, it still doesn't print correctly from Firefox. :P Oh well.
