Blank Space When Exporting Continuous PDF But Not Paginated PDF

When exporting a markdown file as a Continuous PDF, a LOT of extra space is rendered at the bottom.

When exporting a markdown file as a Paginated PDF, no extra space is added.

This seems to happen regardless of style. Compare also the screenshot below of two exports—Paginated and Continuous—using the built-in "Ink" style to see how much extra space is rendered in the Continuous PDF (more than a page).

How do I eliminate the extra blank space at the end of my Continuous PDFs?

    I'll need to look into this further. I can replicate it with about half of the included themes, but others cut off properly, so it may be a CSS issue in the print setup. Thanks for the report.

    Not to bother, but in case one of the fixes in the release notes was intended to address this issue, I just wanted to report that the blank-space-when-exporting issue still persists in version 2.5.27 (965).

    I'm still working on this one. The reason that the extra space is added
    is because some lengths of document actually get cut off. Marked adds a
    percentage based padding, but apparently at this length there's an
    anomaly I need to track down. Math...
