I have a problem with the placement of some text.

In my Word template there is a text in the footer (TextWord.png) and this text is on the first page next to the letter text. Unfortunately, I can't do that in the Report Designer. I have already tested with parent groups, but unfortunately it does not behave as I imagine it would.

Every Time my html field is growing the textboxes moves with the html box down.

 

Is what I want even possible?

If so, how is that possible?

Hello Thomas,

Thank you for the resources. However, I am not sure if I understand whether the big box with the text is the textBox or the smaller boxes on the right, but I will assume that this is the case.

If the HTML text boxes are located next to the big text box(Y-Axis) the HTML text box will not be displayed where you may expect. For example, if you put it near the end of the big text box, you would expect to see it near the end as is in the design but that is not the case. However, if you put the HTML text box under the big box, then it will get displayed after it as one would expect. Perhaps you could try moving your HTML text boxes under the big one? I have attached a short video demonstrating those behaviors.

You may also set the HtmlTextBox's Docking property to Bottom and that will ensure that they will be displayed at the end of the section. I have attached a sample report demonstrating that.

Another option would be to use the Page Footer section to display the HTML text boxes. This section is printed at the end of every page.

Please try the suggested approaches and let me know if you need further assistance or you have any other questions.

Regards,
