Hey Brian, do a forum search on "Print to PDF". I suspect you will find Tableau in general doesn't "Print to PDF" with any elegance. T thinks of itself as the end product -- a screen that includes filters, parameters and data visualizations. It doesn't think of itself as a "word processor" or a "spreadsheet" that can easily be printed from you screen to a page.
While they do (begrudgingly) offer some print options, they really want you to view their data vizzes, not print them (after all you can't select a different filter/parameter on a printed page)
Tableau is the end result. Tableau is NOT the path to a printed document. Tableau is variable/changeable/interactive; a printed page is NOT. Tableau is Tableau, a wonderful data visualization software that can wow you with insight, understanding of your data. Tableau is NOT a static print-friendly word processor.
Summary: Tableau <> Word. Tableau <> Excel Tableau = Tableau.
PS: Let Tableau be Tableau!
