I've had some problems with my reports when printing. Some of the text was cut out (last words in the last sentence on the left side of the paper) although when I preview it on the screen it's all there, but this was just introduction for my question.

I created a function where I have a statement like this:

:cp_1:=first_part||second_part;


cp_1 is placeholder for a string, and I put that on layout of the report &<cp_1>. I realized that I will resolve my problem, if I add extra text to my string, but I need to visually hide it (second_part). That is just a way how to trick my printer not to cut out some of my text.

I don't know how to hide second_part of the above string. I tried to change color of it into white, but I don't see how.

Do you have any idea?

Make the "second string" all blanks:
:cp_1 := 'this is the first string' || '                  ';

I tried that. It didn't work. It just worked when I added for example: ||'1111111'. But I wanted to hide this array of characters.
