I'm probably approachiung this the way but I've created a few reports now (Eclipse plugin) which I am exporting variously to pdf, docx and odt. I've noticed that where I create a table using a set of text boxes with solid borders (the only way I have found) I get lines of double thickness if I leave borders overlapping, even if I position them on top of each other. So far no problem as I have been configuring the borders to not overlap (i.e. where 2 texty boxes overlap I leave one of the borders as transparant). I've realised one of my sub reports is just a repeating box in the detail section though so I can't do this here or the bottom or top would be missing. I'm assuming this must come up a lot ? Is there a way around this ?
Apologies if this isn't clear. Please let me know if not.
