Since upgrading to version 2020(1918) column headings in reports scroll out of sight when scrolling down a report making reading reports difficult.

    This appears to be a bug in switching to an HTML rendering engine. It has been fixed that the report title remains in place but not the column headings.

    Per the change log...

    • Set column headers to "sticky" when saving a report to an html file

    Seems like it's only if you 'Save' the report.

    Hi All

    I reported the heading issue to Sean at the end of July and this was his response.

    “yeah... that's a tougher one. I don't think that's going to make it in the (free upgrade) 2020 release, which I really need to get out ASAP. I also plan for a 2021 release, which I'll try to get that into."

    Hope this helps

    Interesting, I would assume that since reports are now an HTML renderer that making the column headers "sticky" in the save file would also make them sticky in the MD display.

    Yes, the problem is that the html viewer that is used for the reports is apparently not aware of the "sticky" css attribute that's now used in the headers. There are a couple of embedded browser options which will likely address this, so this will be a short term issue.

    Thanks!

    Thanks, now fixed with the latest update. Very confusing when the headers disappear when scrolling down some reports.
