I just upgraded to V4.2.1 from V2.6.2 and I've noticed two compatibility issues with formatting.
Issue 1: Whitespace now appears between my Master Page heading and the first item that follows it. This didn't happen in the previous version and I can't find any margins or padding that would account for it.
Issue 2: Width calculations for a grid seem to be broken when the report is displayed in IE or Firefox, but it works in Chrome. All browsers worked in the previous version.
See file attachment for more details
Please advise as to whether there is a quick fix for either of these issues?
For issue 2, this appears to be an issue with the images being displayed. They work correctly in Chrome, but not in IE or Firefox; however they work differently in IE and Firefox.
In IE the images have this blue border and the filler cell before the images is narrow. In Firefox there are no blue borders, the filler space appears to be sized correctly (ie., the same as in Chrome) but the image cells are too large and thus get clipped.
It happens with a new report as well.
I did some more experimenting. The cells that the images were in specified right alignment and the column width was hard coded. However in both Firefox and IE the calculated position of the right aligned image was done without taking the column width into account. If I changed the alignment to left aligned, things work out better (see attached image).
This leaves me two remaining issues:
1) The strange blue borders around the images in IE that don't appear in either Firefox or Chrome.
2) IE appears to ignore the column widths and sizes the columns however it likes even though all the columns have hard coded widths specified in inches. Only the blank column has no size specified in order to allow it expand and contract with the size of the report and keep the three images right justified.
