I'm having some real trouble with PDF output.

1. No headers or footers are shown. I have an image in the header_left, text in header_right and text in footer_center.

2. Fonts look all bold when they are not, possible font SIZE different than supplied?

3. Grid lines wider than desired. Is it possible to set this value in the PDF?

4. Output not respecting page setup.

PDF output isn't great yet.

For PDF, we create the html output and then feed that to tcpdf.

 

Headers/Footers aren't supported.

Don't know about font sizes/bold/italic... these should be correct

It isn't possible to modify the size of grid lines.

Page setup is an improvement on the 1.7.2 release, which didn't support page orientation or paper size, page breaks or repeating rows, but there is still a lot of work to be done on this.
