Hello @venky1544,

I did the test by changing the orientation parameter in the first panel you have to add in the dashboard, and set the orientation parameter to l.

<option name="smart_exporter_app.smartexporter.orientation">l</option>

It works fine. You can also try to change the format as follows :

<option name="smart_exporter_app.smartexporter.format">a3</option>

@robertlynch2020 have you tried to play with the settings through format visualization option i did tried the XML option but it didn't worked. Try the edit mode in the dashboard and select the brush icon(format visualization) above the smart exporter panel you will get an option of orientation and format i had selected A1 and A2 and did worked for me . although the report has little alignment issues but better than export pdf option.

just give it a try and let me know

Note:- the only problem you need to zoom in to the dashboard with A1 and A2 option
