How do I adjust the fonts and layouts in reports

Q: My accountant wants a print out of all the transactions for last year. As recommended I choose the Ledger Report, but there are many lines on the report is too tight for him to clearly see. I can adjust the print size, but how is their a way to add spaces between the lines?

MoneyWorks allows you to choose the font that your want to use for reports and set up the page layout for each of your reports. Here’s how.

Setting your default fonts.

You can choose the font that you want to use for Reports & your List Views in MoneyWorks by going to the MoneyWorks Preferences in the Setting Up Navigator Window [Red Arrow] and clicking the MoneyWorks Preferences button [Green Arrow] which will open the MoneyWorks Preferences Window.

The MoneyWorks Prefs window will open, click the Fonts tab and then click the Set List View Font and/or Set Printing Font which in each case will allow you to select the font and font size from the Fonts list you have installed on your computer.

Since your accountant probably mat want to see more descriptions or details and spacing for review, adjust the report settings like so:

Clicking the Page Setup icon [Green Arrow} opens the Page Setup for the report, select Landscape as shown, Click OK. For reference the Page Margins icon on the right [REed Arrow] opens your margins for the report. Note: it usually not necessary to customize margins, but it is there on all reports if you need to.
