I do not think you are an idiot, Fred. I have the same problem as you described, but I found out, that even if you can't see the reports on the screen it prints all right. I found a workaround to this: After makinjg a report; save it. With the open report function it will now show up on the screen. It must be a bug some how, because I have not seen this in the earlier versions.
Best regards, Alan
