Do you think the problem with the lines is related to choice of fonts? You
might want to try running the report with the default fonts and see if that
makes a difference. I believe that the lines in GB are "drawn" lines. If
so, that means that their placement does not float with the font and font
size. Different size fonts have different leading and this would definitely
make a difference. And a 12-point font is not the same as every other
12-point font because of the amount of spacing between letters. Hence more
text is pushed to the next line with some fonts which could cause a skew in

Apart from the problem I had on the last page of a 4 or 5 on one report,
the tails are OK on all of the other reports I have tried. I am using
metric / A4 paper settings, I wonder if that has an effect.
One thing you may want to try (which would seem unlikely to fix the
problem you describe) is that you need to set the paper type in Word to
the same as the Print Setup in Genbox.

I don't find this happening when there is no birth event. It happens
there is a birth event, but no data (no date, no place).

The report definitely looks better, but that's because after the first
the horizontal tails are all missing.
