PowerBi Report Builder - Layout Issue

Hi all,

I have a report configured as follows.  Note the location of the section contained within the red box.  This is how I would like the page rendered when printed.
Design view:


This is how the section renders when printed:
Print view:


I cannot understand why the section is not rendering as placed in design view, and cannot find a way to have it placed as I wanted it.

Any ideas?

Thanks and regards,

Hi  @bhalicki ,


You can try the following actions:

Check that the page and margin sizes in the report's page setup are what you expect, and keep them consistent with the printer's settings

Use the Print Layout view in the Power BI Report Builder to preview what the report will look like when it is printed and simulate the printed report to adjust it to print as expected.

If the section is within a container like a rectangle, ensure that the container's properties are set correctly, and that it does not extend beyond the page margins.
