I have recently updated our Chart of Accounts , and would like to know how to be able to have Header Accounts print in Bold text, the way they are shown on the screen. When I print off the list, all the account codes and names are in plain text. Although the sub accounts are indented, it would be good to have the header lines in bold.

 

I'm sure there are other reports that would also benefit from this type of customisation.

Thanks for your feedback. Since rolling out the new report designer, we've been getting some great feedback on how we can make it better. We'll certainly review this suggestion when we plan our next update to the forms.

I have recently upgraded to Acct Right Business Basics, and are happy with it, but unfortuntley the Reports don't let you change the Font Sizeing, or let you change anything in the body of a Report, I am finding that the members are having trouble reading the figures, it is for a bowling club, so some of the members are quite old, are you able to fix this for us? otherwise I will have to go back to using the older version of Business Basics 1.5 as the print size is ok,

I know that you can sent the report to Excel, but it does not all fit accross the page, and you have to print another page with the part that doesn't fit looks awfull

 

I feel we are paying a service contract and not getting the benifit of it, if this new upgrade is not working for us

Please Help

In 2013 when running the balance sheet, the font size is much to small, There needs to be a way to increase the font size please.

I agree - this makes report readability so much better.  You may also be interested in the below idea re headers etc.

You would expect that you would be able to change the fonts in the body of a report, not just the headings. I am having requests for this and I assumed it could be done.

I agree with this as the font size is too small to be read in our factory conditions and it creates more work for us having to export the report and redo it on a spreadsheet. We need a quicker solution.

I would like to be able to change the font properties in the report fields.  Some reports are just too small to confortably read.

 

cheers

Hi @David_Cree 

Thanks for the feedback in regards to this idea.  

If you are finding some reports to hard to read, in the bottom right of the report window is a slider bar and this will increase the zoom making things bigger on the screen. While it will affect the on screen view of the report it will not affect the printed out version.

Hello Steven,

 

thanks for the reply.

 

While I know the slider bar is there for the screen view, my wish relates to the font on the pronted report.

 

Cheers

Hi,

 

I would like the ability to increase the size of the text on reports. The headings can be edited but the body of it, I cannot find a way besides sending to excel. This would be a great feature that is in version 19 but not in 2015. 

 

I understand that increasing the text will make some collumns fall outside of the margins, but the reports I run only contain 2 or 3 collumns and could easily facilitate larger text. 

 

Please consider this idea.
