Headers Missing when Exporting to PDF Using tabcmd

When you export a view to PDF using tabcmd, the headers might be missing from the exported PDF.

When you export the same view to PDF through the Tableau Server user interface, headers do appear on the exported PDF.


  • Tableau Server
  • tabmcd


Override the default height and/or width using the --width and --height options in tabcmd.

For example, instead of the following export to PDF command: 
tabcmd export "<filename>" --fullpdf --pagesize a3 --pagelayout landscape 
use the following command: 
tabcmd export "<filename>" --fullpdf --pagesize a3 --pagelayout landscape  --width 1200
