To expand and collapse the fact pane, click the arrow in the upper-right corner. To change the width of the pane, select the splitter bar on the left side of the pane.

Comments in the report are shown at the top of the Fact pane. You can use the scroll buttons to scroll through the comments, or you can click a comment, and then use the arrow keys to move through them. You can add or delete a comment using the icons in the Comment toolbar. For more information about comments, see Add a comment to a report .
