I am attempting to create a report for end of year IRS reporting. Report needs to conform to IRS guidelines and is a txt file in a precise format. I have followed the guidance for creating such a report (https://github.com/TIBCOSoftware/jasperreports/blob/master/jasperreports...). I am using the dejavu mono font with the but I have been unable to produce a report that does not contain intermittent blank lines. My detail literally has no fields on it - only a blank line of the appropriate length and I still get extra blank lines (report should only have 1447 detail lines but I always get 1452 no matter what i try). I have pared the report down to just a blank line for each detail and still cannot get it to produce the correct number of detail lines.

Not sure the workflow on these kind of issues but it does seem odd that I can assign the issue to someone? I have gotten no feedback since posting so maybe this will help???

There is a property http://jasperreports.sourceforge.net/config.reference.html#net.sf.jasper...

try to setup this property and see if it is what you want.
This question is actually for the JasperReports library not for Jaspersoft Studio.

I have that property set (<property name="net.sf.jasperreports.export.text.page.separator" value=""/>). Does not correct the problem.
