Do not split subreport

Hi all, I have a report with a bunch of subreports in a detail band, and I would like them to never split. As in, if it doesn't fit on the page, I want the subreport to start on a new page. But no matter what I do, it always splits. I tried putting every subreport in a separate detail band, for which I've tried and tested every split type. 

I also tried putting the tag splitType="Prevent" in the subreport brackets, but it doesn't allow me to do that. I really really wish that would be an option. 


TL;DR Jasper should never split subreports

Found the similar issue at below community URL where it was solved by setting Split Type property of  Detail band to "Prevent"

You can try to set this property in your main report details band. Attached the screenshot of this setting.

Hopefully this will help you in your case.
