Help with PDF:Writer (write in new page)

I want to do a list of reports, so each report should be in a different
pdf page. How can I make that I want to finishing writing in the current
page and I want the rest of the pdf in another page, but in the same
document?

Try:

pdf.start_new_page

start_new_page(force = false)

Starts a new page or column. If you pass it ‘true’ it will always start
a new page, even in multi-column situations. The following code will
produce ‘hello’ on one page, and ‘world’ on the next:

require “pdf/writer”

pdf = PDF::Writer.new
pdf.text “hello”
pdf.start_new_page
pdf.text “world”

pdf.save_as(“hello.pdf”)
