rdlc print layout size varies with resolution on Surface Pro (Win 8.1, winforms) RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a winforms application with local rdlc reports.  On Surface Windows 8 Pro devices only, reports render such that they are scaled down and don't fill the page.  If resolution is lowered on the device, the report scales up to fill the page.  This affects the appearance in print layout and well as the actual printed size.

    If we export to pdf, it renders to fill the page (as expected).  If you print to pdf or to printer, the scale is shrunken.

    If we change the resolution settings so that "Make  text and other items larger or smaller" is set to small, the issue is resolved except the tablet is not very usable on this setting.

    Is this a bug?  Is there a work around?  Thanks for any help.
