This is a strange problem in Navision 5.0, I saw a different layout in the same report at different laptop.

I have been setting monitor display settings and font size as same as old one, but it's not working.

Anyone has good solution who can fix this issue, please??

    Hi Ramy,

    The display setting still not worked, but I have found solution, the laptop need install printer device and setup A4 paper.

    Many thanks your replay and help.

    Kindest regards,

    Hi Rex

    Could you please check "Check the Windows default printer settings" ?

    also check screen resolution but it can effect forms but not report. in addition try to maximize report.

    Hi Ramy,

    Many thanks your reply.

    In this report, I have setup paper size (A4) and orientation (landscape) in report properties.

    I think is not reported problem, because 10 laptop only one looks awful.....

    So I don't know why the new laptop print preview can not as same as the other one.

    best regards,
    Rex

    Hi Rex,

    The printer that you use determines how to handle the case in which the actual paper size in the printer is different from the page size that is specified.

    For more information please refer to : docs.microsoft.com/.../ff477105(v=nav.60)
