2349355 - Online Report Designer export does not fit in PDF


Do we have any limit to display maximum number of Columns in ORD PDF output?  This is because when a report is exported to PDF, the columns are truncated.


  • SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite
  • Canvas report

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Report Center
  2. Run any Canvas Report Online
  3. Click on PDF icon on the top right handside of the screen to print page to PDF.


Paper size selected or page settings.


You can try editing the Page Properties of the report in page designer to control the output of the printed file in PDF. Select Edit page properties in the Page Properties menu on the lower left.

There's no limit to the number of columns that you can display, however the Paper or page Size selected can affect the printed outcome,  E.g. the data will export only within the bounds of A4.  And even if you don't constrain canvas size, the design of the report, the width of the columns and page margins will affect what can be fit on paper.

If the report component has a scrollbar, then it is a long table and it is expected behavior that it will truncate or break over pages. To ensure all pages will export as expected, please modify the component or component query, to ensure all data returned fits on the page.
