I'm running into an apparent bug using cfdocument to generate
a PDF. I'm grouping query data with cfoutput to create an inventory
report by department and site, and I'm using inline styles to
control font family, size, etc. Each department is grouped into its
own cfdocumentsection (with its own header and footer), and within
each department section the inventory results are grouped by site.
An alternate version groups first by site, then by department.
There are filtering options to run a full inventory report or
subsets based on inventory age.
Everything displays properly until I run a larger report. A
full inventory query returns about 2500 records, and while most of
the report still displays properly, the font size gets much larger
for certain departments. It appears the departments affected are
typically those with a larger number of query results, but not
always. I first noticed this problem a few weeks ago, and after
much troubleshooting I tried switching from points to picas ... for
some reason that took care of the problem at the time. Today we've
added another inventory type to the report which expanded the query
results, and now the problem is back. I'm not using any exotic
fonts (your basic "Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"), and the font
size is supposed to be .7pc.
Has anyone else encountered this? Ideally I'd like some
suggestions for workarounds, or at least some confirmation that
this is a bug. Thank you!
