How do I change the width of columns when I use the report layout tool? The width of columns in a report layout is automatically calculated based on their widths in the specimen list.  To change report layout widths, return to the specimen list and adjust the column width using the column header.

Remember that a report layout specifies font faces, point sizes, colors, and header & footer text.  A printed report is dependant upon both the report layout and the current filter. The current filter specifies which items to print, which columns to print, their sort order, and the relative widths of the columns.

Here's a sample filter showing three columns.

Here's the same filtered data as seen in the report layout.

Note the relationship to the column widths above.
