If you cannot get FPDF to work the way you like, consider exploring the Zend_PDF component of Zend Framework. It is open source and already on your system if you are using Zend Server.

I've only played with FPDF but have actually used Zend_PDF.

Subject: [WEB400] FPDF

I'm using FPDF (in a Zend Server PHP application) and don't understand why
the dimensions that I put in for drawing lines and rectangles don't seem
to work. I used the default for the FPDF constructor, which means that
my dimensions are in millimeters, but when I say that - for example - a
rectangle is 100 mm wide, the rectangle that prints is not 100mm. When I
change the paper size from the default (A4) to "Letter", the width
changes, but still to a width other than 100mm. Am I missing something?
(I've tried this on a number of printers, so I do not think that it is
related to margins, unprintable areas on printers, etc.)
