Again I will point out, IF you are after "pretty printed" reports (for 
example, when treasurer of an org, what is handed out to the board or 
posted on the organization's web site, DON'T expect to be able to all 
the fancy editing within gnucash. That is not the place for it, and a 
waste of time for accounting system programmers to try to provide 
expanded editing control when perfectly good general purpose editors 
already exist.

So in the example here, instead of exporting into PDF expecting that to 
be print ready, export into something else you can edit, get things like 
those page breaks where you want them, then convert to PDF and print (or 
link to site).
