Report Options ~ Format Tab

The Format tab specifies the Fonts and Styles and Text for Headings, and the Format for Dates. Whereas, the Page Layout tab determines the page Orientation, Margins, Header, Footer, Indents, Tabs, etc.

The options are explained via its Help button, and vary slightly for different Reports.

:!: There is no obvious option to make Headings start on a new page, but every Hdg Style has a Keep with Next option, that if set to 99 lines will effectively force a new page. Web Page (HTML) reports cannot honour this option.

:!: If you use Tab characters to tabulate multi-line text such as Text from Source transcript fields, then the default Format and Page Layout settings usually result in poorly tabulated data in Reports. See how to Tabulate Multiline Text in Records and Reports for advice on settings that will achieve tidy tabulated results. However, this is only effective for PDF File or Word-Processor (RTF) format reports. Web Page (HTML) reports do not support Tab settings.
