:-D

Doesn't look like it is pushed to the left, based on the other items it looks correctly aligned, it definitely looks like items 3, 5 & 7 are overstepping their marks rather than items 2, 4 & 6 being too far left. I think I can prove that with the attached example, although I think there is now a caveat.

> Or you might attach the data and the report for folks to look at.

Yep and in constructing this I think I can now point my fingers at printer drivers perhaps. I have attached a report layout and a PRG, run the PRG to generate cursors in roughly the way they would exist for running the report. The report has been altered a little to remove anything not really pertinent to the issue and to put a red line on the report to show where everything is aligned to.

When I preview the report the problematic items do overstep their boundaries, it's subtle in my recreated example but it does happen ... BUT ... on my PC it only happens when I preview the report, if I print the report to an XPS, PDF or my physical printer everything comes out fine. Previewed the naughty items bleed out of their boundary. You might not get it so I feel the need to prove it in this screenshot.



At the user site it is happening when they print the report and the bleeding seems to be a lot more pronounced for them. Can I just dismiss this as a "printer issue" or can I do something about it?
