Vertical Alignment in Columns

Larry Beasley shared this idea 1 year ago
Idea Logged

We would like to have the option of vertically aligning columns at the top and right.

As it stands it only aligns in the middle with no option to change, therefore this is creating a lot of dead space and does not look tidy.

See picture below as an example of how it currently aligns data in columns (blanked data);

Hi Larry,

I have raised this idea to the developers.

I will update you as soon the idea is implemented.

In the mean time please feel free to email us if you have any other questions or if you need any help.

Thanks for such a quick response. After the idea was submitted I thought that it would be nice if there was an unlimited textbox in the report’s meta information for CSS. Then I could have overridden the vertical alignment or even drastically change the look of the report. With a third-party license we’re really limited. That to me seems like the simpler solution. If the textbox contains data, load it as a style last and let it override. Kind of like how some WordPress themes gives that option.

Hi Larry,

That's a good idea as well. It depends on what direction developers want to take.

Please let me know if you have any more questions.

We see something similar in the crosstab report with multiple dimensions on the row. The first dimension is also centered vertically when aligned at the top looks a lot better.

I thought this was in reference to Cross Tab. Yes. We really need the option to top align text, particularly in cross tab. Looks like this has been open for a year pending getting into a release? I struggle with this on every crosstab table. At a glance, you can see the text in the body of the table, but not the row labels to tell you what you're looking at.

Thank you. I've been trying to edit my response but I can't post comments to this site in Chrome and when I edit in IE it won't save edits.


I wanted to clarity that we really need the option to top align text, for every table type for the Data rows/columns. In Cross Tab, this needs to be configurable for the left header columns as well. I could see wanting it in any header column, but the Cross Tab headers is what's getting me tangled up right now.
