I've printed my notebook into a pdf. There is a huge gap in the left page, due to the fact that the graph in the right page isn't divided to fill in the gap.

Is there a way to fix it, preferably without resorting to do something like:


Currently, although it may not be evident, I'm doing something like:

drawOrbits /@ {deq1, deq2, deq3};

and show the result via Grid[].

May be Print@Row@drawOrbits /@ {deq1, deq2, deq3} is better then Grid? – ybeltukov Jan 10 '14 at 18:47
Thanks @ybeltukov for your suggestion. I will try it tomorrow morning and will come back to you. (FWIW, if it ammends the issue and you post it as answer, I will accept it.) – Zet Jan 10 '14 at 19:25
I tried it but still the graph isn't broken up in 2 parts to fill in the gap. Bummer. – Zet Jan 11 '14 at 14:47
CellPrint works better then Print, see my answer. – ybeltukov Jan 11 '14 at 18:53

You can use Print@Row instead of Grid. However by default output cells have PageBreakWithin->False option. So you can avoid it by CellPrint@ExpressionCell[..., PageBreakWithin -> True].


f[a_] := Plot[#[x], {x, 0, a}, AspectRatio -> 1, ImageSize -> 200] & /@ {Sin, Cos, Tan}

f /@ {10, 30, 100} // Grid

enter image description here

CellPrint@ExpressionCell[Row@f[#], "Output", PageBreakWithin -> True] & /@ {10, 30, 100};

enter image description here

Another possibility is to modify the stylesheet (Format->Edit Stylesheet... and edit appropriate cell with Ctrl+Shift+E).

I will accept the answer, although I don't like much how CellPrint[] doesn't produce the same as a regular output cell (i.e., the whole image is shifted towards the left border of the page). Thanks! – Zet Jan 12 '14 at 18:51
@Zet It can be corrected by ExpressionCell[Row@f[#], "Output", PageBreakWithin -> True], see the second snapshot. "Output" style apply all necessary properties. – ybeltukov Jan 12 '14 at 18:57
Oh, I can provide "Output" as style argument to CellPrint! – Zet Jan 12 '14 at 18:57
