Hello.

I'm struggling with simple things here,
as a field in my qryOrderDetails named PRICE is at any level Aligned
Right,
at both Coloumn level and Persistent Field level, but the Fast Report
Textcomponent
does not reflect this. It is Aligned Left.
I don't understand the Align property in the Fast Report Textcomponent.
If I change it, the component itself is jumping around in the report and
not at a logical pattern.

So far the report building, trying to make a simple invoice, have not
been very fast for me. :-)

The Page Footer for example, that I would believe was relative
positioned at the bottom at the page.
No way. For every band or child band I add, I have to readjust the
position of every one of the components at this Page Footer
as it is pushed down below the page end in the designer, thus spreading
the invoice over two pages.
When I reduce the hight of it to fit the page again, the components on
it is on wrong place relative to the envelope window.

Sure this is only migration frustration, but the align problems have to
be solved.
Any suggestions?

:)

Thinking in the Delphi way, I assumed the align property in the Object
Inspector was the way to go,
but it's a text toolbar that is doing this, even a very powerful so.
So then the align problem is thoroughly solved.

(Time pressure is not a good friend when migrating.)

Still, if someone has a suggestion on the PageFooter phenomenon
I would be greatful.

Thanks in advance.
