Is there a way to put frames around fields on a report not printed from a list view ? Frames that appear in Browse mode dissapear in Preview mode.
You can use the Inspector to put 4-sided borders around your fields.
That works fine in Layout mode, you can then see all the frames you have defined using the inspector. But when you switch to Preview mode, they all have disappeared.
Go to the Layout Setup and uncheck Delinate fields in the current layout only.
You may be confusing frames with borders. If you want something around any or all fields in a printed or previewed report, you want to add borders, not frames. You can put a border on 1, 2, 3, or all 4 sides of a field. If you use a dark color, and select a border width, the borders will appear in Preview mode.

Thank you, it works fine now. Good answer.
