Grouping objects


our company is in a stage of report generation redesign and I am responsible for it.

I did some tests for OpenRPT and looks promising except one thing. 

There is no container which has control over multiple objects.

For example we put  tow "group boxes" inside a section. Every "group box" has some fields inside. So later on if we need to

change the places of this group boxes ti will be very easy instead of changing multiple fields.

Is there a way to group controls? 

Best regards,





Unfortunately there is no way at this time to group objects as you describe. You can drag to select multiple fields, then move them as a group, change font properties, cut/copy, or right-click for a context menu


Thank you for the info, Gil! 

I think, the customers will find this option useful when creating more complex reports.
