The "visibility" tab under properties in BIRT report designer is not letting me to Hide Element. If I check the Hide Element checkbox, I won't be able to check any specific outputs format. Is this a bug introduced for the new BIRT designer?

I just tried this on 3.7.2 and it worked for me. Can you post your design?

I put the screen-shot in the attachment cause i couldn't copy the picture in body. I couldn't check the "pdf" checkbox, or any other output formats. The BIRT designer version is 3.7.2, Windows 7, and Java home points to jdk1.6.0_27. This doesn't work on any report item, even the simplest Label item i put in the new test report. Thanks.

Now I see the issue :>. Can you log a bug for this? To work around it
can you check the odt (last option). That one should work and then
check ppt. Look at the xml that is generated (XML View). You will see
this:

<list-property name="visibility">
<structure>
<property name="format">ppt</property>
<expression name="valueExpr"
type="javascript">true</expression>
</structure>
<structure>
<property name="format">odt</property>
<expression name="valueExpr"
type="javascript">true</expression>
</structure>
</list-property>

Just set the format and number of entries you want manually.
