'Invert Color if negative' in NPrinting Excel shows wrong color in PDF in some cases

Hello there,

I came across a strange problem in NPrinting Excel.

In my report there's a stacked bar chart which displays used and free budget. I enabled a cycle so a report will be created for each budget number.

I've activated the 'invert color if negative'-option. Now, when exporting the report as a pdf it sometimes shows the wrong color. In some cases it works perfectly fine. Strange thing is: the same report, exported as xlsx, always shows the right one.

Is this a bug or a feature or am I too dumb? 

PDF:

xlsx:

The source table for the chart only contains one value per field which is okay:

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

I think to understand the cause we need to reproduce the issue here. I suggest you to open a support ticket with everything we need to reproduce (report template, source app, steps, etc). 

The issue appears randomly and only when the output is PDF so I suspect it is something related with the production of the pdf.

Best Regards,

Ruggero

Hello @andreas_ar

 

Please note that some features of excel 'may not' work within the NPrinting designer.

The working list of features are mentioned here via the link below.

 

 

I will defer to my colleague @Ruggero_Piccoli for more details if any are different than those shared above.

 

Kind regards...

Thank you very much for your answers. I will open a ticket on Monday as I'm not at the office until then.

@Frank_S  Perhaps I described my problem too imprecisely. It's random like @Ruggero_Piccoli said and only if converted into a PDF.

 

Kind regards

Andreas
