1348633 - Control border thickness on a field

Symptom

After exporting report to pdf the boxes on page added with single line borders set through Format Editor Borders tab are too bold and boxes on page having single line borders which are been manually added around fields by setting width to 0.5 pt are much finer.View the report at 200% to see the problem.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a simple report having two fields .
  2. One fields has single line borders set through Format Editor Borders tab
  3. Other field has single line borders  which are been manually added around fields by setting width to 0.5 pt.

Cause

This is the default behaviour.

Resolution

  • For field borders there are no options for the width
  • Only the type of line (i.e single, dashed).If you want to control the width of the border you are going to have to draw boxes, as already tested, with those you can select the width.
  • So, as stated there is no option rather than drawing boxes manually.
