Not sure if this is the right topic area.

I am using the Report package to generate printouts. When I use the landscape function, the report displayed on the screen is missing some divider bars. (every other bar) The result from the printer is correct and if I change the view to portrait, the bars are visible.

Also, is there a way to format each cell individually? I tried using the formating commands and they work for every cell after the start command not just the selected cells.

Thank you,

Dave

Well, most likely this is caused by loosing of details due to rescaling (rescale drops the line width bellow 1, so that it does not get displayed).

We could solve the problem to some degree by supersampling, but I am afraid it would make it slow...

Sure, just change it back Wink

Also see '!' command: Reset to defaults.

Note that the take on these cell attributes was gradually changing. Basically there are 3 options: Do not copy attributes at all, copy in columns and current solution (copy atributes from previous cell). In the end of day, current solution leads to least complex average cases - usually most tables have one format for header, second for body, which makes for two cell attribute definitions in the code...

I figured out the formatting problem I was having. I didn't realize that the formating information had to be located prior to the cell divider.

Thank you for the information on the separators not being displayed
in a layout mode report.
