    The + button only causes a zoom in on the screen. It is not affecting the actual layout.

    The report rendering engine tries to fit the report page into the physical page size. This results in shrinking of font size,etc.
    To fix
    a) reduce the content on the report to something reasonable for printing.(Std paper sizes and orientation)
    b) change the page size selection. Of course, you will need a printer and paper of the size you set.

    Cheers,

    Is the report bitmapped or character mode?
    You need to adjust the width of the report on Report Paper Layout for A3.
    For character mode reports you will need to use a wide DESFORMAT (prt file).

    Cheers,
