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.

Please retry with the autobuild.

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.

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?

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?

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.
