Frustrated rant about reporting

This is not a question, more a rant about the deficiencies of report layout.

I produce a report with bar charts in, and the bar charts are counts of Windows events. Which get truncated, so you can't read what they are. OK, I think, let's print these landscape rather than portrait - and the result is the same; the graph hogs three-quareters of the page and the labels still get truncated.

Where is there a setting that allows you either to (1) word-wrap the labels, or (2) allocate the label enough space to be complete in more cases?

And come to that, who thought it was a good ide to print alternate labels on charts of ~25 lines if you have the font readable, rather than at something stupidly small like 4pt?

Sorry, but this really needs fixing, and reasonably soon.

Hi James

did you log a product enhancement request?

Also, is it possible to upload a picture or results of what you mean?
