Hi raulpuig ,

i you want to customize the pdf according to your needs you can make use of mpdf class

you can find it under : modules/AOS_PDF_Templates/PDF_Lib/mpdf.php

here the example i have customized table in using mpdf class

    public function getpdf($cond)
           $d_image = explode('?',SugarThemeRegistry::current()->getImageURL('company_logo.png'));
           $head =  '<table style="width: 100%; font-family: Arial; text-align: center;" border="0" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="2">
                            <tbody style="text-align: left;">
                            <tr style="text-align: left;">
                            <td style="text-align: left;">
                            <p><img src="'.$d_image[0].'" style="float: left;"/>&nbsp;</p>
                            <tr style="text-align: left;">
                            <td style="text-align: left;"></td>
                             <tr style="text-align: left;">
                            <td style="text-align: left;">

                            <tr style="text-align: left;">
                            <td style="text-align: left;">
                            </table><br />';
            global $db;
            $sql = "SELECT , o_order.order_number , o_order.billing_address_country , o_order.total_cost , o_order.tracking_id , o_order.billing_address_city , o_order.order_status , o_order.phone_office , jt0.user_name assigned_user_name , jt0.created_by assigned_user_name_owner , 'Users' assigned_user_name_mod, o_order.date_entered , o_order.assigned_user_id FROM o_order LEFT JOIN users jt0 ON AND jt0.deleted=0 AND jt0.deleted=0 where ($cond) AND o_order.deleted=0 ORDER BY o_order.date_entered DESC";
