Hello,
that message is generated at fpdf library that is used to generate the document. It means it is failing to load the font used to write it. Fonts used are Courier (for header&footer) and Arial. Could you check if you have both fonts available at your computer?.
If any of them is not present, we can explain to you how to change it for one available to make it work.
Regards

Ok, please edit this file:

yourjoomla\components\com_listmanager\views\listmanager\tmpl\pdf.php


If you want to change font types, you can change lines like

SetFont('Arial',........

for other family available.

Hope this helps,
