I'm facing issues printing PDF even with wkhtmltopdf version 0.12.6. It prints header/letterhead with "Repeat Header and Footer in PDF" checkbox unchecked. But if I select this checkbox then it removes header and footer completely from the PDF. Hence I don't have the option to repeat the header / footer in all the pages. Also Header and Footer is not appearing in the PDF for custom html formats ( though appearing in print preview)
