Teechart and Report Builder

We are moving from Delphi2010/ReportBuilder 11 to XE5/Reportbuildr 15 and have
found a horrible problem with TeeChrts not displaying if the printformat is set
to pfBitmap.
Change the print format to pfMetafile does display the charts, but they are
much uglier.

Anyone else seen this or got an idea as to what might be causing it?

Hi Tarry,

There is a patch available for RB 15.04 that solves this issue. Please
send a short email to support@digital-metaphors.com to receive the patch
and installation instructions.

ReportBuilder uses the same TeeChart logic to export charts to Bitmap
and Metafile so the renderings should be identical. Using the bitmap
option will actually give a lower quality chart output on a report.
This is due to the fact that while zooming or printing a bitmap is
simply scaled where a Metafile which is completely redrawn for each zoom
setting or print resolution.
