Printing a dataset in Windows Client

You can save documents created with the printout as PDF-file and use them for other purposes or route alternative printing jobs directly to a printer.
The printout from the form view of the main window also contains information from linked information areas (entities). The title bar of the report viewer always displays the current name of the report.
