Page formatting for a single label

Hi,

I'm trying to develop a label in SSRS 2016. These labels are on a spool of one label wide and are printed from a thermal label printer and will be printed one label at a time. Label size is 4"x5" so I've set the report properties accordingly and changed the margins to .25".

I'm designing the report and have placed all of the text boxes I think I need on the form but when I preview it there is always a second page, which is blank. So I'm guessing this means that if I were to print it I'd get my label plus a blank label, which would be wasteful. It feels like one of the elements is too big but I cannot figure out which one it would be.

I did figure out how to turn on the rulers in design mode and they show a canvas that is much smaller than 4x5 so I'm stumped.

So how can I figure out why the extra page is being created? I'm not very practiced at creating reports so if someone knows of a tutorial on how to create custom sized reports like this I'm all ears. I haven't found one in my searches yet.

Thanks in advance!

Hi @lkubler ,
‘Blank page issue’ is such a black-hole in itself that no one can ever guarantee that following some specified set of steps would save you from falling into that ditch.
For more infomation :https://stoneridgesoftware.com/blank-page-issues-ssrs-reports/

But your issue can be solved,i did a test in report bulder, and by creating a new blank report ,and in the report olny a textbox .Then there is no blank page when exporting with pdf.
