Defect #4686

When exporting to PDF, text should wrap and honor newlines, instead of being constrained to one line

When exporting to PDF, fields with long text string are cut off. The text stays on one row, and any text to the right of the column boundary is cut off.

Instead, it would be very useful if long text wrapped to the next line.

Also, custom fields with multi-line support are also constrained to one line/row, even when there are newlines in the text. I would expect PDF export to honor the newlines in such fields with explicit newlines.

I briefly checked out the PDF export library used by Redmine. It seems to not support any form of text wrapping. People that use it seem to be switching to prawn.
