    Hi,

    We can create bullets in smartforms.

    For this change the editor to text editor and then

    goto insert->characters->SAP Symbols and select the

    symbol you want.

    This may help your requirement.

    You cannot see the bullets in print preview, it'll

    appear only on a hard copy.

    hope this will helps you.

    Regards,

    Kiran

    Hi Udit,

    When it prints # instead of the character, this suggests that the character is not supported by the device type character set.

    Try agan and create a new spool via cascading fonts device type SWINCF.

    With your printer connected to a Windows system, you can use the device type SWINCF with Access Method S or G which will utilise the Windows printer driver.

    • Hi,

      in larger companies there is often quite a variety of printers. So instead of working with special characters which might not be processed correctly in some cases, I use pictures for bullets. Might take some more time for defining the smartform but on the long run much less issues / complaints and struggling with printer settings.

      Best Regards
