Hi Vanderlei, 
In order to paginate the  text contents drawn using PdfTextElement  you may need to set layout Format for the text element as shown in the code below: 
//Set the properties to paginate the text. 
PdfLayoutFormat layoutFormat = new PdfLayoutFormat(); 
layoutFormat.Break = PdfLayoutBreakType.FitPage; 
layoutFormat.Layout = PdfLayoutType.Paginate; 
//Draw the text element with the properties and formats set. 
PdfTextLayoutResult result = element.Draw(page, bounds, layoutFormat); 
// Set bounds of next text based on last layout bounds 
bounds = new RectangleF( result.LastLineBounds.X , result.LastLineBounds.Y+20, page.Graphics.ClientSize.Width, page.Graphics.ClientSize.Height); 
// Use the  PdfTextLayoutResult Page propoerty whihch gets the last layout page after pagination. 
element.Draw(result.Page, bounds, layoutFormat); 

We have created a simple sample for the same it can be downloaded from below link: 
Please check if this helps to solve your issue.
