Report font overlapping
Baan: iBaanERP 5.0c
C/S: None/Unknown

I'm trying to print a larger font using the BWPRINT method of changing the font. I have no problem specifying the User Font 16, and changing the font size. When I set it to 14 or greater, the letters overlap. I need to be able to change the horizontal font spacing. Through BWPRINT I can select the Font Spacing option, but only the Vertical Spacing is available to be changed. The Horizontal spacing is shown, but disabled. Is there a way to enable this? I read something in a previous thread about Windows Administrator rights having an impact on making changes, but I don't know if it refered to this. Will logging on as an Administator allow me to change this? Or, is there a way around it?
I've tried changing the escape codes for Font 16 in the printinf file, but it doesn't seem to impact this. I don't know if it is because I'm using the Windows default printer.
Some help would be appreciated.

The only thing I can tell you is I sent a sample report in preview mode to my PC and I was able to change both the horizontal and vertical spacing. Nothing special on the report I sent - used default printer(I guess nothing in device queue) and my user id does have admin rights on my PC. Tried it a couple of times with the same report. Worked both times. Have you tried just using a standard baan report - like print paper types? Sent it in preview mode and see if you can change the spacing. One possibility is the version you are running for the client or bwprint - just a wild guess.

GO Cards!
My latest mantra - make sure you have latest stpapi patches and the latest session object. If on LN then please explore the option of using DAL2 functionality.

I tried a standard report and the Horizontal Spacing is disable there as well. I guess I'll have to try to get an Administrator to logon and see if this is a Window issue, or a Baan issue.
