    I have both the Q1 and Q2 version of the report designer and I noticed a change that you guys made that I'm curious about. In the Q1 version, while you're going through the new report wizard there is an option to change the page settings, which allows you to change the page from portrait to landscape. In the Q2 version however, this option seems to have been removed, and there isn't a great way to change a report that has 'Adjust report items to fit available space' enabled to then take up the new space that switching it to landscape provides. I'd really like to see this feature added back in as it made the process much more simple before to take up all available space.

    If however you guys aren't going to put that back in, I'd like to know what the simplest way of doing it after the report wizard. I know how to switch it to landscape in the properties, and I know about the increase horizontal spacing button that sometimes can make it easier to take up the aditional space, but it doesn't always work quite right and fixing each box to take up +/- .1 in is really annoying.

    Hello Randy,

    Thank you for reporting this behavior of the Telerik Q2 2014 Report Wizard.

    We are going to log this issue in our system for improvement and address it in a future release of the Reporting suite.

    In the meantime you can either resize the report and its items manually in order to fit the new Landscape page format, or you can switch to a Table item (Table Wizard) to create your report layout. Note that the Table item can be resized much more easily and also has improved performance when the report is rendered in some of the rendering formats.

    Regards,

    Thank you for pointing out the table report, that is MUCH easier to re-size the columns. I hope that it does get added back in since it made things easy, however this is certainly an adequate fix in the mean time. Thanks again!
