I can tag the column and make it wider still, but not narrower.

I can help you in adjusting the column of your report, @finance139.

 

You can simply click on the column boarder until you see the scale width icon. You can drag the icon to adjust the width for your NUM column from there. 

 

You can choose to widen up the entire column up to a certain space. However, the space that you can narrow it up is limited. It's usually based on how lengthy the Sales Receipt No. or Invoice No. that you set. 

Here's more information on how to customize reports in QuickBooks Online. Also, you can check this reference for detailed guidance on how to customize and modify columns on reports

I have the same problem.  I can increase the width of the Amount column so that it doesn't split over 2 lines, but when I print or export to pdf, it goes back to the original width and splits numbers over 2 lines.

I can help you sort this out, @kbofoz.

 

To isolate this issue, let's make sure you have an updated Adobe Reader version. This program is used for printing files from your computer, like reports in QuickBooks Online (QBO). 

 

To update its release version, you can check this link for detailed instructions: Install updates for Acrobat and Reader. Once done, print your account quick report again.

 

If you get the same result, let's try to repair the installation of Adobe Reader to fix the printing alignment issues. Let me show you how:

  1. Close the Acrobat Reader and all open browsers on your computer.
  2. Click the Start button in the lower left-hand corner of your screen.
  3. Type Control Panel in the search box, and then press Enter on your keyboard.
  4. Select Programs and Features.
  5. Click Acrobat or Adobe Reader, and then select Uninstall/Change.
  6. Select Next in the Setup dialog box.
  7. Click RepairNext, and then select Install.
  8. Select Finish when the repair is complete.
  9. Restart your computer.

After that, sign in to your QBO account and try to print the report.

 

Also, in case you might want to memorize reports, you can read this article for your future reference: Memorize Reports.
