Hi, 

i'm currently having a clipping issue when a string column is going over 2 pages ( or more ) on the second page there is clipping issues with the text being cut. I have moved the column around and can sometimes have it when no clipping occurs, however its very inconstant , when printed it displays fine, but when saving as PDF it is clipped again. Does anyone know if there is a way to deal with this issue?

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly, 

  1. Windows 10 Version 1903
  2. Informaker Version 2017 R2 Build 1769  ( i have also tried in 2019 Build 2082)  
  3.  It is a freeform report with a string column that in some circumstances goes over two pages or more. 
  4. We currently use Native to generate the print preview ( PDF ) 

I found an old link to someone questioning this issue before but it never got answered unfortunately, someone suggested manipulating the column somehow but never fully explained what they did.

Any help is appreciated, 

Thanks

Hi Neil;

Thank you for that information! I suspect that IM might have the same issue a PowerBuilder DataWindow as the IM Report is actually a DW. In PB, a trick that I use that might solve this is ...



In the RetrieveStart event of your DW Control, try adding ...

THIS.Modify ( 'datawindow.PushCutControlToNextPage=yes' )



The problem of course is that IM has no scripting capabilities. Though, it would be interesting to do a quick test in PB to see if this setting cures your issue.

Hi Neil;

   Can you tell us  ...

1) Windows version & build?

2) IM version & build

3) Is this a Form or Report?

4) What mechanism are you using to generate the PDF (PostScript, XLSFO, Native (built-in) )?

Regards ... Chris
