Improvements

The ability to add comments directly to the report and have them print out is a very nice feature that MR added over FRx.

Printing – MR Viewer

The first step for printing the report is to setup the report settings in the Report Definition. You will find the Page Setup on the Settings Tab and clicking on the Other… button.
From here you can control the margins, page orientation, scaling, paper size, and page order.

Printing – Web Viewer

Printing from the Web Viewer may not work the way you want as this is a web page view and is not designed to print documents.
