I don't understand what you mean. By "ellipsized" do you mean "fit into
a rectangle with rounded corners" or "This is too long so I stop here..." ?
Also do you want to lose some content, or do you want to add an ellipsis
then continue on the next page? If the latter, I guess it could be an
option so that when paragraphs are split, we inserted something.
