Hello,

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.

Thanks for help.

Bianca

You might try removing the padding from the top on the table cell and on the data element. That should help a little.

Hello Michael,

sorry for my late response.

I have set the padding, so that the pdf looks fine. But what should I do if i like to print the line with a padding from 0 on the top of the cell in future?

It seems like a bug in BIRT should I write one?

Thanks for your help.

Not sure I'm understanding the follow up question. Any way you can explain a little more?

In many reports we have the request, to print all lines with nearly no space between them. Often it is only a checklist and we try to use so little paper we can.

Then we change the padding top and padding bottom to zeroe.

But then I will have the problem with the space betwenn border top and text.

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.
