I don't have tables.pdf either. How old is that?
"test_platypus_tables.pdf" is a single page with no splitting.
Matt, what I have been doing is calculating the number of rows that I
can fit on a page (about 40, with a size 7 font, plus header), and
generating a new table on each page with subsets of the data. I just
keep the header, attach it to the appropriate number of rows, and add a
table to the set of elements in the document, and then a page break.
Repeat until you run out of rows. The drawback is that it is hard to
know how much space you have left at the end, but I just break the page
and start a new section. Not perfect, but it works, and in the end
ReportLab saves a lot more time than it takes to handle these things.
