Re:  Crystal Reports text truncated when exported to PDF

Hello,
I have a .NET application that uses the bundled version of Crystal Reports (limited ver 9).  When the web application exports a report to PDF, some text on the right portion of the text object is truncated.  Other objects on the report display properly and are not truncated (and are shifted further over to the right margin).  The web server has a default printer installed.  The text object that gets truncated is formatted to "can grow" and allows printing on multiple lines.  The text object's height is larger than the actual text to allow for growth if needed.  The text is still truncated on right side of text object.  Any ideas?

Thanks, Steve

Actually, ebolek referred to a post about Excel Truncation, which is a completely separate issue from what's happening in .pdf exports (the poster's issue).
