Cool! Another thing to consider is trying to make the table borders a bit more thinner. Crystal Report thinnest border is half the size of XtraReport's thinnest.

This helps when printing thousands of invoices, we save on ink/toner and print heads.

I can email you a sample of an invoice designed in CR.

Hi Seth

I second Saif's request for thinner border styles. We currently have to play around with BorderColor to give the illusion of thin borders.

One of the long waited features I have been waiting for is to make the borders thinner.  The dot border may help as right now I am using lighter color.  However, I always have to add the option for the users to choose the color be/c on some older printers the color doesn't even print.

Thanks,

Neil

+1!

I've been waiting for hairline borders, too. I hope to see it's implemented in the upcoming release (2010v2).

Thanks
