I have a layout for printing on a letterhead and have inserted an image file as the Background Image to serve as the letterhead. Printing and Save to PDF work as expected, but for the life of me I cannot get the background image to display correctly in Preview mode.
Not displaying correctly in Preview mode is not terrible except, when the client does a print preview and it doesn't line up, there will be questions...even though it print correctly.
Basically, it looks like the background image has a pre-determined padding applied to it at the top, but all parts and objects are set to padding 0.
Has anyone else experienced this?
Preview mode - letterhead has padding
Printed PDF - the letterhead is up where it should be:
We are developing a contract layout for a client. There is a modestly long header (260 its.), short body (26pts), but a very long footer that is one large text box detailing terms and conditions. Its boiler plate but they need it there. Since it is one large block it won't print on the first page. Instead in preview mode the bottom half of the page, below the body, is blank and the boiler plate starts on a second page.
Is there a way to have this last large text block start on the first page and spill over onto a second page?
How can I get this to format correctly as one cohesive document?
Anyone else having this problem?
When I format the fill and/or borders on fields, they:
Only show up in browse mode for the active record (none of the others) Formatting disappears completely on Preview Mode I have Alternate Row and Active Row states set to off.
I'm hoping it's something simple that I just can't seem to find.Â I've uploaded the Browse, Layout, and Preview mode screenshots of a layout where this is a problem,
I have a report that is causing printing problems.
The way this report works is that it gathers data from all over the system, and then creates individual report records ("BodyText," "BodyTextIndent," etc). Those records allow me to customize page breaks and easily set margins, etc.
However, the problem I am running into is that when we view the report in Preview Mode, it looks fine (sometimes it happens naturally, other times we have to use my system of Sub-summary page breaks - but that is not the issue here). Sometimes when we print out the report, the page break that is printed is not the page break that is displayed in Preview Mode.
It seems as though the printing process shrinks the margins of the layout by maybe 1/4 inch, at most. But that is enough to send the record on the bottom of the page to the top of the next page.
It's not a driver or printer issue, as this has happened on multiple printers from multiple machines, and it also happens when saving to a PDF.
If anyone has seen this issue before, I would appreciate any input you might have.
