Printing a report from the report preview

If you try to print a report from the report preview, then you will get a script error message.

To see the tooltip, you must tap the message or icon.

Automatic sizing of FactBoxes

When a Microsoft Dynamics NAV page that has a FactBox is displayed in a Web Part on SharePoint, the FactBox width is too narrow to display the main content.

Google Chrome

To avoid this issue, specify a width for the Web Part.
