What is your idea?


Allow to export mixed format PDFs, with landsacpe and portrait format/oriented pages.


What problem are you trying to solve or what scenario would this idea solve?


I report online-data for page-success to the customer via PDF weekly.

Some dashboards fit better in landsacpe format, some in portrait. So I choose Dashboard size A4 Landscpae or A4 Portrait according to the data displayed.

When i hit the PDF Export later this page size/page format is not used dynamically, but i have to choose the page orientation again.

Choosing the landscape orientation when exporting a PDF, all a4 portrait dashboards are squeezed to fit horizontally and viceversa....


What workaround have you found and used so far (if any)?


I am exporting separately all A4 portrait oriented dashboards and all landsacape oriented , and i merge the pdf-Reports later in NitroPDF.

And with all this re-work to be done it feels like the Tableau PDF export is very rudimentary and incomplete.
