First of all, I have installed Infomaker Version 5.0 on 3 machines. I
then worked on a report on one of the machines and then saved it. I then
went to one of the other machines and opened that same file. The line
locations (coordinates) are all different. I then opened this same file
on the other machine and it opens correctly. I did a re-install and have
also applied the new patch to 5.0.03. But non of this seemed to make any
difference. I was using pixels as a unit and everything is rounded to
the nearest 5. But when I went to print it would not left justify so I
have changed the units to
Powerbuilder Units. All of our computers are running Windows 95.

Please Help.

My guess is that the one machine is setup differently. Check in the report
painter the options to see whether you have different values for 'snap to
grid' and 'X' and 'Y'.

Are you running the same screen resolution on all machines?

That was close put not it. I was playing with the res. and I changed the Font
size. Go into Display Properties/Settings/And Change your Font SIZE from Small
to Large or Large to Small. Now when you enter InfoMaker and go into that
Report that you have created all of the lines and text have all changed there
coordinates.

InfoMaker must fix this bug.

Thanks a lot Terry for your help.
