// Please enter a detailed description of the issue // Description of the issue:

Paginated PDF was created with a second blank page.

// Please enter a list of steps required to reproduce the issue // Steps to reproduce:

  1. I created a document using the latest Ulysses beta for the Mac. (Version 13 (42335))
  2. Command-6 to export a TextBundle to Marked 2.
  3. I exported in Marked as a paginated PDF using the Swiss theme.
  4. It created a lovely PDF, which is exactly what I wanted, but there was a blank page added at the end that I had to manually delete.

// If applicable please attach a sample document that causes the issue for you.

// Configuration (do not edit) Marked 2 952 (Direct)

macOS Version: 10.14

    I'm guessing that the end of the file was just close enough that blank
    space after the footnotes section caused it to spill onto a second page
    (but without showing any visible indication why). To verify the issue,
    try testing with the GitHub theme, which will come out to a slightly
    shorter page, and see if you still get the blank 2nd page.

    I did test with the attached textbundle and got a single page PDF when
    exporting Paginated PDF using the Swiss theme, so it might be another
    issue. Let me know.

    I exported it using the Swiss theme again and got the same results. I also tried to export as a paginated PDF using the GitHub theme. That produced a shorter first page, but I'm still getting a blank second page.

    If it makes a difference, I'm using macOS Mojave. Also, please don't worry about this too much. I'd hate to see you spending your valuable time tracking down something that's clearly an edge case, and a pretty meaningless one at that.

    I'll upload the file that I just produced using the GitHub theme, but please feel free to ignore this whole issue in favor of more important work.

    Thanks for testing. Guess I'll need to get Mojave installed and see if I
    can replicate :).
