Print Style Sheet - Not all content from jquery tabs is showing up

I have tabs set up using jquery and am using display:inline-block !important; to override the inline element display:none.  This does work, but instead of getting a page break when the content reaches the end of the page it just doesn't show up. Well at least not in firefox.  It shows up in safari, and in ie I get a scrollbar, but still not all the content.  

I've tried page break, overflow and a number of other things, but I'm just not having any success pinpointing the problem.

Hi JulesWebb,

Try adding the below css class to the end of your print.css
#bd {overflow:visible;padding:0;}

Thanks remorina

That did help, but there is still content missing on page 2 of the print preview.  I checked some of the other pages that use the tabs and they all seem to have the same problem.  Can you please take another look for me?

Hi JulesWebb,
Unfortunately I'm unabvle to track it further on my PC since I don't have an offline version for the site and one saved locally isn't complete and looks like it misses some other css files or scripts.

You can follow my method in tracking what's causing this and it wouldn't take you minutes to figure out what's causing it.

I start disabling the css files being loaded, like styles.css, and check the print, if everything is fine then there is a class in styles.css not being reversed in print.css
Then I start deleting chunks of css lines and check which part is affecting the desired area then narrow it down till I get hold of the single class that when removed it would be working fine.
Then finally you can reverse the properties of this class in the print.css.
This was exactly what I've done to get you the above solution.

Hope this helps you tracking it down.

Thanks for the tip! I tracked it down immediately:-)  All I needed to do was add margin:0; to the css you initially suggested.
