Re: More on the reports I am working on


This sounds so familiar. I am trying to remember what I once did to
fix something like this.

Some ideas to try in the following order:

(1) Are you sure that it prints with improper alignment as opposed to
just displaying with improper alignment? If it prints OK, either just
ignore the screen display or you might want to look at your setting for 
"DisplayUsingPrinterMetrics" in the maker.ini file if you have this 
setting defined at all (no it isn't documented in the FM).
If Yes, change to No. If No, change to Yes. If it isn't defined in your
maker.ini file, try each value in succession and see if one or the other
fixes the problem.

(2) Turn OFF pair kerning for the Paragraph Style in which you are
using Courier and columns of numbers. Theoretically, this "shouldn't"
make a difference since Courier supposedly doesn't have any pair
kerning data defined.

(3) Alignment for the Paragraph Style in question should be "Left"
or else attempts to justify text will vary the spacing between words.
