|OO 2.4, Win XP SP2
A MySQL table with a few fields.
Use wizard to create a report with 4 fields.
(1) Editing columns widths has problems. Saving and reloading the data to check column widths can cause loss of the report. Somehow things got confused and the report ends up empty. Editing and going back and forth using the Design mode button may cause loss of a report.
(2) After report is generated, but with wrong sorting, it's very difficult to figure out how to change the sorting. Help is no help. Just says something about don't edit the fields unless you know what you are doing.
(3) Page width of second page is wider than first page of Cinema template.
(4) Editing a report and changing title in File >> Properties >> Description >> Title and then saving report does not stick.
Are these bugs?
Shall I report them in a bug database?
