TOPIC: RP2 Variations

RP2 Variations 1 year 3 months ago #1

Hi!
Not sure, if this is the correct forum, but anyhow:
opening a Designer created RP2 report and previewing, it get rather distinct output, see: and

No big deal, but is there anything i can do to get in 2.30 the same view as in 2.17?

TIA
Karl

Hi Karl,

i never used Report Pro, and i´m sure i´ll never use it, but the 2.30 view looks the same as when i open an in "portrait" mode created DIN A4 pdf. It only looks like your 2.17 image when i scale within the arobat reader the pdf view to 100%. Is there a similar scaling/zoom option in RP 2.30 ?

Hi Karl-Heinz,
thx for the tip - indeed, the preview of 2.30 has zoom buttons, and if i zoom out enough, the "Paper view" appears. Seems, like the default zoom has changed... Unfortunately, preview does not save last zoom state, had a look in RpWin.ini, but there's no param for this.

Interestingly, the zoom states are somewhat erroneous: default shows all content, but no page limits, zoom out once let the text grow (!), another "out" shrinks again to full paper view...

Hi Karl,

I'm generating pure PDFs or optional XLS files only. How does your 2.30 views look like when you create "landscape" reports? Do they appear by default in "paperview" style ? At least then my pdfs are shown in the acrobat reader in "paperview" style by default.

Nope, Landscape previews show the same behaviour...
What do you see, when you use the designer preview? What Acrobat does with the result is another thing... FTR, just did a PDF out of preview, when i view this in XchangePDF-Viewer it shows "paperview".

Hi Karl,

"Designer Preview"

I´m creating handcoded pdf reports using a pdf class that wraps the isedquickpdf.dll .
So my only "Designer Preview(er)" is the acrobat reader or any other pdf viewer ;-)

And yes, no matter which orientation a pdf has the Xchange viewer shows the pdf always in "paperview".
