Pathfinder - PDF - page 2 columns too short


The PDF output sheet page 2 has its columns too short. Far too short.

Whatever math is being used to calculate when it should start a new column / page is very wrong.

Attached is a PDF showing the stock output. The paper size is US-Letter.

Autobuild is located here:

It is built every 24 hours automatically. The only difference currently between 6.4.0 and 6.5.0 is JAVA version used. 6.5 uses Java 1.7.

I downloaded the autobuild and encountered the exact same problem.

For the record, this is a stock autobuild, with only the following settings changed:
1) settings directory = program directory
2) set default character folder
3) set output paper type to Letter

Then I open the test PCG file (above) and export > PDF > csheet_fantasy_std_grey_light.xslt

I am attaching my 6.0.5 output... though it's superfluous, as it's the same issue as before.

The machine I'm using is Windows 7 x64 SP1.
java -version:
java version "1.8.0_25"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_25-b18)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.25-b02, mixed mode)

Is there any way it could be related to the version of Java that I am running? What version are you using?

I downloaded and ran PCGen 6.0.4 on one of my old workstations that is rarely turned on these days. It still had Java 7u25. The OS was Win7 SP1 x64.

I encountered the same issue.

At this point, I'm curious as to why I'm having this problem and not Andrew. Not only does page 2 look correct for you, but the spell sheet has a lot of spell description info that my spell sheets are missing. And I'm not customizing or tweaking things... these are pretty much stock installs. What gives?

Hi Itwally,

The spell descriptions is Toggled by the house rule "Use Full Spell Descriptions from the Core Books" - found under preferences from the menu.

I do not know why my letter is working. It is much harder to debug this without being able to accurately reproduce it.

I need to do some school work before I can work on this more.

Please retry with the autobuild.
