RTF in Clarion Report

Added a TEXT box to Detail section in Report. RichText.

Printing gives “?” question marks where there were supposed to be bullet points.
I tried changing fonts…
When using the “Print” button, from the RTF control, all is well, but not when the RTF field is in a report.

The RTFNotepad example app does the same!

Hope someone can shed some light on the subject.

I’ve seen this a few times in the newsgroups but I have no experience. It has something to do with the rtf definition of a bullet. Search the newsgroups the info is there, if not also here.

The experts were asked at a regular Clarion Wednesday webinar about this.
All three, Bruce Johnson, John Hickey and Mike Hanson tried to shed some light on the subject.
Unfortunately no solution.:cry:
A Clarion report will not produce all the correct RTF formatting.

Perhaps their is a commercial template that someone knows about that DOES work?

Use an RTF control and Print to WMF.

It has been a long time since I did the work but I know SubSystems.com RTF Control could print to file one page at a time. It could be configured to output WMFs that worked in the Clarion Image so could show in a Report preview.

Hi Fouché,

I also had this issue and thanks to Miguel Pena and Kevin Erskine, there is a solution!
Please see the 2 pdf attachments.

Best regards
