4.2 webi break/fold behaviour different in 4.2 compared to 4.0

Hi,

We currently have 4.0 SP08 in production and testing 4.2 SP05 in development as plan to update production to 4.2 sp05 in near future.

The following difference in break behaviour between 4.0 and 4.2 has been noticed.

In 4.0 if insert break on variable

see below

However in 4.2 see below and have to scroll to very end of several pages to see next part of break

Anyone seen similar in 4.2 and if need to do something differently in 4.2 regarding break/fold behaviour to have similar functionality to 4.0 automtically in the 4.2 version had to explicitly tick the repeat header on every page opttion on manage breaks ( i.4 4.0 this is unselected)

For some reason the t part in bottom left is mssing in the 42 version by default - any ideas why? To mimic behaviour in 4.2 for this haveto go in and format table to show headers

    hi Philip,

    This is a bug in SP05 and now fixed in 4.2-SP5 Patch 300 (available today 12.05.2018).
