Spacing of objects in Crystal Reports 10

Spacing of objects in Crystal Reports 10

Spacing of objects in Crystal Reports 10


I have created a report in Crystal Reports 10 and initially had less objects so could leave them at their default size. I have since expanded the report to have more objects but even changing to a 60" printer driver the available space isn't enough. This report only gets exported into Excel.

I therefore need to reduce the size of each object in the Crystal design view knowing that once exported the size isn't an issue. I know how to resize all objects to be the same size but I want to automatically butt them all against each other starting from the left margin to reduce the space. Surely I can't be expected to manually move them all up one at a time?! ponder



RE: Spacing of objects in Crystal Reports 10

I have a report that is over 100" wide (exports to csv), thus lining up the objects took a while. I do not know of a easy way (using vertical guidelines help) of getting the objects next to each other.

RE: Spacing of objects in Crystal Reports 10

OMG that is ridiculous! If they could make functionality to make all objects the same size at the touch of a button why couldn't they make them all line up?! thumbsdown

Well better start now and I might be done by Xmas! hourglass

RE: Spacing of objects in Crystal Reports 10

They probably could, but features that would help with csv and Excel have been ignored.
