Formatting features in BIRT Designer Professional
BIRT Designer Professional supports all the formatting features available in the open‑source version, and provides additional features. The reports you create using BIRT Designer Professional are typically published to the BIRT iHub, where they can be viewed in Interactive Viewer, opened in Report Studio, added to a dashboard, or made available to mobile devices. Often, when designing a report, you consider how the report is viewed and used by these applications.
This chapter describes the additional report formatting options in BIRT Designer Professional. For more information about formatting options, see Formatting report content. This chapter also describes the design issues to consider when designing reports that users view in the web viewer.
