With it, you can scale the content to better fit on the page, customize the paper size, change the page orientation, work with templates and use many others features that provide extensive control over the exported PDF file.

The PDF Generator is built from the ground up and specifically for React so that you get a high-performance control which integrates tightly with your application and with the rest of the KendoReact components.
