Grouped Supbreport with ColumnTraversal set ctLeftToRight

edited September 2011 in Subreports

I have a problem with grouped subreports: I give the subreport three
columns and set the ColumnTraversal-property to ctLeftToRight. The
first group prints 5 'rows' and ends up printing the fifth one in line
2, column 2.
Now the second group starts printing, creating a new line, but
unexpectedly in column 3!

How can I force all the groups to start printing in column 1?

By the way, it's the same on main reports.

    Hi Mena,

    This is a limitation of Left-To-Right columns in ReportBuilder. The
    left-to-right engine is not designed to handle groups.

    To work around the issue, you could re-design your datset so top to
    bottom columns are used instead.

    I already did so, but that turns out to be quite a waste of paper, as
    the columns break at the end of the page, eof appears at the middle of
    the second column and column 3 is all empty.

    Is there an easy way to arrange columnlengths evenly? Something like
    'new column after Recordcount div Columncount'?

    are currently considering adding such a feature to the next release of
