Hi,
I am working with the integrated tool in visual studio. The attached picture shows a report where I have set the margins left and right= to 1 cm.
My understanding is that, in order to get it printed correctly, no controls or images should stay out of those margins.
The problem is that I clearly see the red line indicating the margins on the right and therefore I can manage to position the elements of the report on its left but the margin on the left side of the report (red line) is not showing correctly as it is on the edge of the report and not 1 cm inside as it should be.
Is this a bug or there is something I am missing?

Moreover, knowing that I will set the side margins at 10mm from left and right, should a give the report the total dimensions of the paper size less the margins ( A4= 210 mm, margins 10+10, report width= 210-10-10=190 mm)?
Or there is another way to handle this ?

Hello Felice,

Generally the report designer is only showing the available report canvas and the page margins part are not included. This way we better utilize the available workspace and additionally the report viewer interactive view don't use the strict page setting. The page settings are only used for page orientated formats and print preview.

About the right margins we do allow to place items beyond the right margin because the advanced paging engine supports both vertical and horizontal paging. Thus the content will not be truncated but paged on the next page.

About the paper dimensions you are correct and this how we calculate the page dimensions.

For more information on the topic check out the Understanding Pagination help article.
