Documentation is confusing when it comes to formatting the HTML. Basically writeHTML trashes most of the HTML you send it. I suppose this is fine if you are outputting a PDF based on very simple content and markup but for reports needing more than the very basic markup this is not the tool, or at least the lack of detailed documentation makes it seem that way.
The examples look good but the installation guide, absolutely useless and not very helpful. Had to guess what exactly you wanted the PHP was to include and to configure the damn thing. Then I get a message saying TCPDF error: Could not include font definition file: helvetica.php - No support whatever. Absolute waste of time, I would recommend providing a clearer installation guide as one you have on your site is pathetic.
Well, looks promising but I can't get it work. After I have copied files to server and tried some example I have got a Failed opening required '__DIR__/tcpdf_autoconfig.php' no matter what I put into config/tcpdf_config.php, the result is always the same (or shame actually). Html2PDF, which uses the tcpdf internally works right of the box properly - try to be like that please or provide some comperhensive installation instructions.
Looks like a fantastic suite but svg support seems to be seriously broken.
