This is a limitation of how Tableau renders dashboards to PDF, it only renders what's visible. The workarounds are:
1) Use a bare worksheet instead of a dashboard. For example I've set up dashboards with an "Export Data" button worksheet that has a Filter Action that jumps to a bare worksheet that is formatted with a title and the desired data, then from there users can export to PDF and get the entire list.
2) Set up the dashboard so there is no scrollbar and instead the Pages Shelf is used to cycle through the "pages" of data. This gets more complicated to set up in some cases but it's possible to set up the Pages Shelf and then the print to PDF can cycle through the Pages values. I've got a draft blog post on this that's been sitting around for several months, if you want to go this route let me know and I can dig it up.

Thanks for quick reply.
But I didn't get the solutions you shared. It would be great if you can explain me in depth or with steps to do this.
I have 3 sheets in my dashboard two with 400 rows and one with top 10 data. So the two sheets are coming with scroll and because of that i tried page-by but i am not getting the desired output and my supervisor wants full data after exporting it to pdf.
Please do share if you have any details on this.
Hi JONATHAN i would need that now, it seems a great idea.
My Requirement is Exactly similar,
"Avoiding scroll and getting all the detailed data while exporting dashboard in PDF format"
it involves clicking on a single dimension on the Header text table and
all the details of that particular dimension gets shown in the bottom as two more views (first one has a combination of 21 sheets and second one has details text table view) with the help of Action Filters.
I have done that part But my main constraint is the download as PDF option.
Due to scroll the PDF doesn't capture all the details of that particular Dimension.
I like your idea can you please share your workbook here
