Did you look at the new PDF Document Generation from Mendix? This works easier then the old document template logic as you can actually create a Mendix page and turn it into a PDF. So you will have list views available.
Note that the PDF Document Generation for now only is supported locally and in Mendix Cloud.
The Document Template is the traditional way of generating PDFs on Mendix. It has some limitations, as you have noticed. See this video from MendixWithMe
and this from Master Mendix
There's a new way of doing PDF Generator using the DocumentGeneration Module. The PDF generation using this module is server side. See this video from MendixWithMe
