I have a grid with 5 columns, 4 of which are set to autoFitColumn.  When in the normal view, they are behaving as expected - resizing to fit the needs of the text contained in them.

When I export the view to a PDF though, it is completely minimizing the autofit columns down to a tiny size.  When I apply the autoFitColumn to the grid as a whole, the columns are not necessarily auto-fitting, instead having parts of text cut off on the longer columns, while leaving the other smaller columns with a bunch of white space.

Attached image shows what I'm trying to say here.  What I'm trying to get is those 4 columns to be autoFit and still show up properly when exported to PDF.  OR for the "all columns autofit" to stop giving all the whitespace to the small columns so that it isn't cutting off the text of the larger ones.

Thanks

Hello Nicholas,

Here's a dojo example, in which 4 of the 5 columns in a Grid are set to autoFit: https://dojo.telerik.com/eZACibiR/2

The columns look properly in the exported pdf file.

Could you modify the example accordingly so that it demonstrates the problematic behavior?
