There are a lot of variables at your disposal when making a text or table element. All HTML2PDF accessible variables are shown in the help section, but beside these all default Magento variables can also be used. The way that you indicate a variable, is by using the format shown below in code example and screen print.

{{variable_code}}        //the format
{{order_data_status}}    //example, will print the status of the order
