How to use the Report Preview Pane

Note: All pages below are subject to having relevant Roles and Permissions.

The Live Preview Pane to the right of the Report Layout section displays the expected output for the report. If in any other view the Report Preview option will return to the Preview Pane.

The Preview Pane Toolbar gives a number of options.

From left to right the Toolbar gives some standard viewing options:

Refresh –  will refresh the preview

First Page  –  will move to the first page of the report

Previous Page  –  will move to the previous page of the report

Page Selector – will move directly to the page number entered in the number box. This also shows the total number of pages available

Next Page  –  will move to the next page of the report

Last Page  –  will move to the last page of the report

Toggle Print Preview  –  will toggle between displaying the preview in separate pages or as one page

Export  –  will export the information from the report in several formats (see Export)*

Print  –  will print the report

Toggle Document Map  –  will toggle between the report and the document map if there is one

Toggle Parameter Area  –  will toggle between the report and the parameters option

Zoom In  –  will zoom in on the report

Zoom Out  –  will zoom out on the report

Toggle Full Page/Page Width  –  will toggle between the preview, full page length and full page width
