Subject:Re: Report Print Reformat

This is not a bug exactly, but annoying.

Things to try:

What happens when you print the report not to screen, directly to printer?

When you open the report to screen do you hear a “ding” sound? What about
when print from screen?

Make a copy of the report, open to screen, delete some objects a few at a
time and try to find the culprit object. Groups and size to fit options might.

Open the report to screen, drop to design mode. Menu to File-Print-Report.
Dialog opens, go to Advanced tab.
What is the Overflow handling set at?
Try changing that.
