We want to generate PDF forms, so we are using different Word form controls. We found that plain text control is exported into the PDF output as a PDF field, however it has some limitations with text length and wrapping. We are very interested on using rich text controls, since they allow better formatting, longer and wrapped text and inserting tags inside the control to pre-fill the PDF form field.15 votes
Disconnect DataSets from Datasources. If we could create a dataset seperately (Like we do with Query Tags) we could have datasets defined in the template itself and not in the datasources. This allows us to change the datasource when generating the template on the Staging or Prod machines and still have the same subset of data selected.
It would make templates much more reusable as we could define a handful of more general datasources and limit the data requested by using DataSets in the templates.3 votes
We have reviewed this idea and accepted it for future development. We will come up with a solution where you specify in the Engine to use the Dataset defined in the template instead of specifying the same query in the Engine. This way, changes made to the Dataset in the template can be used in the Engine at runtime without you needing to update the query somewhere in the Engine, but rather just by updating the template.
If this solution does not solve your problem, please let me know. Thank you for your idea and please submit any other ideas you have to improve our software.
We current switched from the .NET engine to the RESTful engine and discovered that we lost the ability to create Text reports. For some reason the RESTful engine does not support this simple file output. Can you please put this feature into the RESTful engine? We have many customers that require text reports that are directly loaded into mainframes and/or other hardware and we can't provide any other file format.1 vote
We have accepted this idea for future development. I will update this ticket again when the idea is targeted for a future release. Thank you for your suggestion, and please submit any other ideas you have to improve our products.

Report is not displaying complete data in cell as length/width of cell is not adjusting by windward report automatically based on data length.1 vote
