A great product but is lacking one very important (in my opinion) ability. It really, really needs a page break function. Producing something with multiple line items (i.e. an invoice) and keeping track of where you are (y axis) is a bit cumbersome; especially when you have to determine how many characters can fit on a line, whether there will be a line wrap, and decrement your y position holder accordingly. Another PDF generator I worked with several years ago had this feature but that was about the only good thing it offered. I switched to CFX PDF several years ago even though and just haven't found another option...yet...
