    PDF strips indentation on list

    NoMercy4All

      I have a report created with MS Visual Studio Reporting Services. One of the fields it retrieves from the database has a bulleted list. It is stored correctly in the database and Reader used to correctly display the list with indentations. All of a sudden, the PDF refused to display any indentation, it just strips out any white space at the beginning of the line. Does anyone know why this happens??? What changed?

          If I had to guess, I would say it is on the end of the application used to create the PDF. Reader is just going to display what it gets. It can't reformat a PDF.

            I guess I should specify that I'm looking for someone who actually uses MS Visual Studio Reporting Services and exports files to PDF with it, since they may have some insight on why this is happening. If someone can verify that Reader is definitely not the problem, that's great, it narrows it down for me, but all I get is 'may be, could be, my guess is'; nobody seems to have a definite answer. I've asked on every forum I can find, and while lots of people have this problem and some people claim to have the answer, none of the 'solutions' have worked for any of us and I've seen no hard evidence that it is not Reader.

              Can you post a sample pdf file?

                Unfortunately, I can't, it contains confidential information. This is a screen shot of part of it, the top paragraph is from the original document with correct formatting, the lower portion shows how it looks now with the indentation stripped. It doesn't seem to matter whether bullets or hyphens are used, in both cases it strips the indent.

                  Can you post the pdf file of this part?

                    I repeat, the PDF contains confidential information, I cannot post it.

                      It's going to be next to impossible to figure this out with a screen shot.

                       

                      You can use the redaction tools to remove any sensitive information in the PDF and post it.

                        How do I post it, I don't see an 'Attach' function here.

                          I have the same problem, our Invoces are displayed wrong. When you scroll down and up, it is displayed correctly. It seems like the indent is wrong.

                           

                          I am willing to upload a invoice, but where is that attach button?
