Are you saying native PDF exporting in test plan view or from BIRT or Cognos report?

The embedded pdf printout cannot be customized. The layout/format are all fixed.

However, RQM packages sample RPE templates from 4.0. Those templates include testcase summary, testplan summary, testsuite summary and testcase execution result summary. They follow the similar layout/format the pdf report does, and allows user to customize them using RPE.

So if you want to customize the test plan pdf printout, you should:
1. download the RPE templates. You can find them under 'All Downloads' tab of RQM product download page, with name of "Sample Quality Manager templates for IBM Rational Reporting for Document Generation (RRDG) "
2. get RPE product installed (you may need a license) and modify the sample templates to whatever you like.
3. generate the template, using 'PDF' as the output format.

What is your report template, BIRT?
The sections of test plan should have been exported via native PDF exporting. Is it enough for you? If you would like advanced customization of PDF exporting, please considering RPE.
