Could you share a sample workbook?
Unfortunately, I can't share a workbook, the content is confidential.
I did discover that switching "Fit Width" back to the default "Standard" did spread the data out across the pdf unobscuring the data. Don't quite understand it but it worked.
Ideally, I'd like to be able to set the view to landscape paper size and have tableau show me a wysiwyg view. Right now I have to trial and error creating the actual pdf to see what it will look like.
