Clean install: drush 7.x-4.4, Drupal 7.4, Chaos Tools 7.x.1.0-beta1, devel 7.x-1.0, views 7.x-1.0-rc1, FPDI 1.4.1, FPDF_TPL 1.2, tcpdf_5_9_102.

Checked admin/report/status and made sure no errors

Used devel to generate 50 nodes of random content

Created a view on the generated content, used defaults (show content teasers with links, published content ordered by post-date)

Created a display pdf on the view, only changed the path to "/test_report_pdf"

Tried view pdf page and ?q=test_report_pdf in all cases a pdf is generated but with no text.

You need to define where the fields should be placed. By default they are placed all in the left upper corner. It can happened that you cant see anything.

I have this same problem. When displaying the view as Unformatted PDF, there is a link to field format config, so I can make the data visible, but this link apears to be missing when displaying the view as PDF Table, which is what I need. Any ideas?

Thanks a lot

I am having the same problem - it only shows a blank PDF. It will show a background PDF but it still will not display and dynamic data on the PDF page. Please help.

To expound on @hunziker's response, you also need to set Font Size under Show > PDF Fields > Settings
