Hello, Python Team,

In reference.pdf I came across truncated lines in Python syntax that are not wrapped and carried forward to the next line, but instead run across the right margin.

"2.3 Identifiers and keywords" line contains "id_start ::= <all characters in general categories"

"8.8.1 Coroutine function definition" line contains "async_funcdef ::= [decorators] "async" "def" funcname "(" [parameter_list] ")" ["->" expression"

It would be VERY convenient to fix this for printing.

Thank you

Can you say from which URL you downloaded the PDF (assuming you didn't build it yourself)?

We recentrly upgraded our PDF build toolchain and I don't see it happen again.

Don't hesitate to reopen if you find another occurence of it.

Thanks for reporting!
