Fit a project report across multiple pages

When importing a lot of tasks and milestones, OnePager automatically stretches the height of the project report and allows you to scroll up and down for easy editing. When printing, users sometimes see that these long reports are compressed down to a single page and appear very tall and skinny:

The reason this report appears so narrow is because it is being fit by the printer to a single page. The longer a report is, the skinnier it has to get in order to scale itself down to a single piece of paper.

If your report is too long to fit on a single page without looking like this, the best solution is to allow the report to print on multiple pages. OnePager has a setting that automatically inserts page breaks and does a "best fit" across multiple pages for longer reports. Here's how:

  1. Click on the Page Layout tab and locate the Width and Height controls in the Document Fitting panel:

    By default, your document is set to print 1 page wide by 1 page tall, which is why if you look at the Scale, you will see a very small number like 30%. This means that the document has been reduced to 30% of its original size to fit vertically on a single page.
  2. The better solution is to allow OnePager to automatically fit the document to as many pages as necessary. Change the Height setting from "1 page" to "Automatic":

  3. Now, click on Print Preview and you will see that the project report now spans three pages at nearly full size, making it much easier to read:

From here, you can print all three pages at once, or save them to PowerPoint or PDF, keeping the same page breaks.
