Thanks Dan, I can see that Simple Print produces 5 pages for this article. The way it works at the moment is it produces 3 versions of the PDF with three different font sizes: small, medium and large (there’s a small variation between these three sizes, mostly intended to reduce paper use). If changing the font size doesn’t change the number of pages produced, the largest font size will be selected, but if it does, it will step down a font size.
We’ve had some reports of this auto-sizing not working well with strange results on some articles, so I thought that’s perhaps what you’d experienced. But the 5-page PDF I can see from Simple Print for this article is the way it’s currently intended to work. But we do realise the smallest font size used, as in this example, can be quite difficult to read, so we are trying to work on a solution so users can override it and opt for larger sizing.
I’m afraid I can’t say when that option will be implemented, but we’ll update here and on our blog when it is.
