Cause

  • Limitations of the PDF generator currently implemented in HCM.

Resolution

  • The truncated data has been identified as expected behaviour cause by limitations of the PDF generator.
  • Currently there have been several issues which have been highlighted relating to PDF aspects of the application.
    This is mainly due to the PDF functionality and limitations.
