Modifying a report’s layout is the most common modification made with the Report Writer. Report layouts are often changed to match a company standard, or to have information print properly on preprinted forms.
You can make most layout modifications using the tools in the Toolbox and the display options in the Drawing Options window. Both are described in Report Layout.
Some reports that are included with Microsoft Dynamics GP are text reports, so fewer tools and drawing options will be available. You can change a report to be a graphics report, and all of the tools and drawing options will be available to modify the layout.
Graphics reports can take longer to print than text reports, so if a report is used to print large quantities of information, you may want to continue using a text report.
