    I am having a real hard time trying to fit my report on a page and having it print just on one page. I am using the Telerik reporting plug in for Visual Studio 2015. I have several pages that are portrait letter size. The margins are set to 15mm. On the page I am trying to make things fit into a 18.1cm width. It works fine for page 1. However on page 2, despite it being the exact same width, I get a little exclamation mark at the top which says it won't fit on one page. That's despite the fact when I go to Preview it fits perfectly. How do you make sure things fit on a page with the margins etc? It is SOOOOO fiddly!

    Hi Richard,

    The design preview includes interactive and print modes, where the physical layout is displayed in print mode - Interactive vs. Print Layout.

    If during the designing of the report there are notifications about the size of the report, this means that when the reporting engine applies the set PageSettings properties, the content will not fit - Understanding Pagination.
