I yous Birt 3.7.1 and like to print a report in PDF with borders, but the report doesn't look nice because there is so much space between the border top an the text. To the border bottom is much less space.
The only solution, I have found is to set a negativ margin on the datafile, but this is no nice solution, because if I print the report as HTML there will be no space between the border top and the text.
The vertical allignment I have set to top, but this makes no difference.
Is there any way to solve this problem without setting a margin?
I have created a simply test report to show my problem. The difference between the two tables was a margin top of -3 on the cell CUSTOMERNAME.
If you're wanting to set this up to print differently in different situations, you might be able to set up different styles to use in different situations. On that sets the padding to 0 to cram as much into as little of a space as possible and one that allows there to be more space. Maybe I'm still misunderstanding. Let me know.
