  • Hi,

    Thanks, that was the conclusion I was coming to.

    I have had to embed an image of the text that I want displayed - but it makes the report HUGE!

    Cheers.

  • For single words, you can have a small workaround:

    • set the text in a monospace font like consolas, courrier, courrier new, ... (all the letters have the same width)
    • make the textbox just wide enough so that only one character can be seen
    • make the textbox heigh enough so that all the characters are displayed

    I know, it is not a great way to work.

    Greetz,

  • Do you want the text to display like this:

     

    T

    e

    x

    t

     

    Or do you want the the glyphs themselves to be upside down, such that "p" looks like "b"?

    I think if you want the glyphs to be upside down,  you'll need a font that has all the glyphs inverted, or you could post-process the HTML rendering and add the FlipV filter:

    RS doesn't currently implement HTML static filters.
