Page break does not work in IE8

Reported by: lhinderks Owned by: fredck
Priority: Normal Milestone: CKEditor 3.2
Component: General Version:
Keywords: Confirmed Review+ Cc:


On the demo web page,, insert a page break anywhere and print the page. The page break does not cause a page break when printed. The same issue occurs in FCK 2.6.5. Did not try in other browsers.

It seems like it doesn't work at all in every browser... "page break for printing" is visible in the editor, but when printing directly using the "Print" button from the editor somehow it is not taken into consideration (but it is visible on the printed page).

It works when pressing the "Preview" button and printing page content from the preview popup.

In fact the current behavior for the Print command is printing the contents as we see them in the editor, not as they will be in the final output. So, anchors, flash placeholders and anything else that is editor specific will be visible in the print. This is also related to the page break for printing placeholder.

Changing the way we handling printing is a much bigger thing. For now we can simply make the page break bar breaking when printing. That's all about the proposed patch.
