Unable to move fields [message #548875] Mon, 26 March 2012 15:46 Go to next message

I am modifying an existing report. It's just a tabular format with column headers. I selected all fields and frames and turned confine mode and flex mode OFF. I need to add another column to this report so I tried to resize and then move some of the fields.

If I try to move the right side of a colum header/field in, to make it smaller, it won't let me. I can move the left side of the field in, but then it won't let me move the entire field or column header to the left. If I try to move a field over to the right, all the fields to the right side move along with it. Doesn't this normally only happen when flex or confine mode are ON?

Any help is appreciated.

I know it is a late answer, but ... did you check whether these fields (actually, objects) are GROUPED? You'll know that by clicking on any field - if it is not part of a group, only that field will be selected (you'll see handlers (small black rectangles) only around that field). If it is part of a group, the whole group will be selected (so handlers will show much wider selection than the field). Note that the second click on the same field will select the field itself.
