Hi Doug, 

We have a similar situation with one client who is running our Studio 10.1 r29237 app on a Windows 10 laptop with an external monitor.  For this client, the right-side of the report is appearing “off the page” to the right, yet when they print to PDF or printer it is fine.

The only thing that we have noticed (and replicated on a different computer) is the Scaling setting in the Displays settings.  This client has her scaling set to 225%, when we replicate at that setting we get the same problem, when we change the scaling to 200% the problem goes away.

I can’t replicate this using Parallels/Windows 10 on my MBP with the external LG (made for Mac) monitor, I think that Parallels has some automatic setting when operating in this environment, but others in my team can replicate the problem and solve it on their computers, we are attempting to do the same on the client’s computer this morning.  The client has an unhappy view of the world which makes trying this more difficult, I'm sure you have experience with that problem.  If we manage to change her computer settings I will let you know the outcome.
