    The UI is making it difficult for me to read my reports. It is centering everything and my So my notes which are in the report are harder to read. I don't like the format for the report.

    I liked it at first glance, but now, yes, you're right. The centered makes it had to just read across each row. :)

    Mark,
    Am I right in understanding you have text fields with different lengths of content, so the rows are sizing to contain all the content? And because the text is centered now, it's meaning all the values are centered to the middle of wide rows?

    I am a different "Mark", but you have it correct. 

    The fields on a table report used to be top aligned and now they are vertically centered so as your eyes read across its all higgly piggly up and down.

    That is correct.  As you can see in the screen shot from the other Mark shows how difficult it is to read a report without scrolling up and down to read.

    Yes the new UI is crap from a usability stand point, is there a way to switch back?

    I submitted a ticket about this. +1 on changing the justification back to the TOP, not CENTERED !!

    Our users are having difficulty reading the reports.

    Excuse my ignorance but does patching mean fixing?

    Patch means we're updating the software which runs Quick Base. It's called a patch because it only fixes bugs, it doesn't release new features. It's the third patch we've done since Monday. 

    We believe that it should fix this bug.
