What is the current behavior?

The created PDF Header/Footer were not embedded!
Created pdf_header.html and pdf_footer.html in _layout/ebook/

  • CLI version: 2.3.0
  • GitBook version: 3.2.2
  • OS: Windows 10 (Using the Windows Powershell)

What is the expected behavior?

The created header and footer should occur in the resulting PDF.


I could solve the problem by removing the line-breaks in the generated template strings.
~/.gitbook/versions/3.2.2/lib/output/ebook/getConvertOptions.js 65ff

'--pdf-header-template':    headerTpl.replace(/(\r\n|\n|\r)/gm,""),
'--pdf-footer-template':    footerTpl.replace(/(\r\n|\n|\r)/gm,"")
