Making standard compensation statements always fit on one page

Overview

When designing standard compensation statements we often get an additional blank page that gets added at the end of the pdf (sometimes it shows some of the information we added to the right-side sections but other times it is totally blank).

The recording below takes us through some workarounds we can use to prevent that from happening while keeping all of the information needed on the statement. It is based on some explanations I made in the comments section of the blog post below: https://blogs.sap.com/2020/04/14/tips-tricks-to-customize-the-standard-compensation-statement/comment-page-1/#comment-512587

Please note there is a known limitation with this workaround that if you use tokens to display information on the main body text and the token is for a numeric field (amount, money), the field formatting displayed on the right side will not carry over to the main body text. Only custom compensation statements would allow this.
