Hi stroudbaps,

 

Maybe you could try going into the report and selecting the Gear Icon within the reports page and un-ticking Compact. This will spread the data out a little so it is easier to read,

 

If that doesn't work you can try exporting the data to Excel then printing, you can also email the data to yourself and try printing it off that way as well, a few things to try.

 

Let us know how that goes.

Hi stroudbaps,

 

Is the whole report, including the non-bolded parts, hard to read? Also, is the report's size spanning the whole physical page? Ensure that you have selected the correct paper size in the print settings, then try printing it again.

 

Let us know if the report fonts are still hard to read after following the above steps.

Hi Bonnie,

I have checked these things and the bolded parts are still smooshing, even when I save to PDF.

Emailing seemed to work.  Thanks.
