It would be nice to have some nomenclature for inserting a page break. Currently when using "Save PDF", it outputs one huge long PDF file, rather than multiple pages.

I suggest something like {pagebreak}

    This isn't currently possible with the Webkit printing system. If I'm able to incorporate something like Pandoc or HTMLDoc, this would be feasible. No promises at the moment.

    I know this is from awhile ago, but I have been able to get around this by using print and then saving as a pdf rather than saying save as pdf. It's an extra step, but it works.

    It is from a while ago.

    See here. Also, you can use horizontal rules (---) and set them to be page breaks in preferences.

    Version 1.5 will have print-to-pdf style pagination as a default export option.
