Trying to use a hypehnation tex file with Views PDf, I get the following fatal arror (& WSOD):
PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined method PdfTemplate::getHyphenPatternsFromTEX()
The offending code is at line 428 of views_pdf_template.php:
$hyphen_patterns = $this->getHyphenPatternsFromTEX($patternFile);
A little research found this: http://sourceforge.net/p/tcpdf/bugs/782/
It appears TCPDF has recently changed the way to call the method getHyphenPatternsFromTEX(). I will attach a patch to update the method call.
