The options in the View menu give you flexibility to display report pages at the size and width you choose.

  • Let's say you're viewing a report on a small device and it's hard to see titles and legends. Select View > Actual size to increase the size of the report page. Use the scrollbars to move around the report.

  • Another option is to fit the report to your screen width by selecting Fit to width. This may still require the use of a vertical scrollbar.

  • If you don't want any scrollbars, but want to make the best use of your screen size. Select Fit to Page.

  • The final option, Full screen, displays your report page without menubars and headers. Full screen may be a good choice for small screens where the details are hard to see. Full screen may also be a good choice when projecting report pages on large screens for people to view but not interact.

When you exit the report, your View settings are not saved, but revert to the default. If it's important to you to save these settings, use bookmarks.
