Re: Indented Descendent Report

In Reply to: Indented Descendent Report by Roy Burress of 11492

I too am *new* to UFT (3.1) on XP, in that I have not had MSWord on the machine or installed as the default "Print to File" Text Editor.

First, the editorial:
Users of UFT who also have a working path to MSWord's Winword.exe on their machines don't necessarily see the same report problems that barebones users, particularly those with *too many* fonts have.

So, on my machine when I tried send an Indented Descendant Report direct to the printer [no print to file] just now, I found the preview screen shown in some fancy font, probably named with a first letter that is near the start of the alphabet, but in, perhaps, the specified Times New Roman. Beautiful Chart. Few other programs come close. {I don't think I have more than 250 fonts installed.}

Back to Roy- Suggestion: Either get rid of all of your extra fonts to get repeatable results in direct printing from UFT, or at least set up "Print to File" to automatically launch reports to Wordpad with [*Other* Editor Choice] selected.

Back to John- By the way, does anyone have any hints on setting the path to Winword.exe, seemingly in the *normal* place on XP, [although this version of Word came bundled with Works 2005]?
