Dynamic setup PDF page - New pdf feature/property that allows the report created using page set when run PDF for certain criteria to appear on the pdf page without causing too much white space at the bottom of pages when there is less data - which occurs when set a static page size for the output

This property will automate the data generation. Currently, for each server that we want to generate data, we have to enter in the report in editing mode and change the PDF page setup property to then run the report (run PDF) and change the property again for the next server.

For different months we also have to change the PDF page setup because the amount of data varies from one month to other, so in some cases the defined PDF page is very large and has a lot of white space. If we reduce the page size to eliminate these white spaces, then for the months with more data, the report is generated with a large number of pages and we want the result to be on just one PDF page (even though the page has to be huge for that).
