The latest ColourSpace release includes a major update of Reports.
Information is provided within the Interactive User Manual, and additional info is provided here.

From the Customer Downloads page, Example Reports can be accessed.
(Obviously, new Reports can be started from scratch.)

The attached PDFs show what the Example Reports look like.

With the v2 release of Reports, we have added Auto Text Blocks, that flow over multiple pages.
This means tables, such as dE Reports, can be as long as needed.

Another Example Template Layout has been added the the Customer Download zip, and as a PDF in the first pots of this thread.
This new example has wide graphs for RGB Balance and Dif EOTF, making them easier to see within the report.

Another tip for those building their own Layout Templates.
In Reports Setup options, Show block boundary will put a various colour borders around each individual block, highlighting it, and defining if the block is Auto Sized, or Fixed Size, as well as any Borders used to pad the layout.

This helps with sizing and alignment during the layout design process.

With the latest ColourSpace release we have made a change to the way the Graphs position & scale is defined.
This will mean any existing Layout Templates will need the graphs re-defined.
(It will be just the Scale/Zoom that will be wrong/different.)

The Example Reports have been updated.

The latest ColourSpace release includes a MAJOR update to Reports.
We have enabled Auto Sizing for Text Blocks, as well as the ability for Text Blocks to flow over page breaks.
This greatly eases the user design of new Layout Templates.

The PDF examples in the first post have been updated with the latest Report capabilities, as well as the .zip Customer Download Examples.

The downloadable Example Reports have been tweaked a bit, for those that want to download the new versions.

Many thanks for providing these! They look great.

I don't want to treat on anyone's toes as I'm sure many people are customising things, and perhaps we're all doing the same sort of things, but if it's ok i will share one change I've made as it's one of the few things I can "give back" . To get the "coverage" and "limits" numbers to line up, I've used a small HTML table. I think this looks nicer (the only downside is that I had to use fixed widths for the columns).

I will attach a picture showing the effect of the changes. Hopefully it's simple enough for people to copy and use in their own layouts.

(I did try the same using the deITP variables as described in the accompanying PDF for completeness for people who would like to see those numbers. However I don't think those variables are implemented yet? Eg P1deITP_count_band0_col, P1deITP_count_band0, P1deITP_count_band0%, P1deITP_min. Which is fine as deITP is of limited use)

My own "wouldn't it be nice", if it's not already planned of course, would be for the automatic {deXXXX} variables...
PDF guide:

{deXXXX} Auto Min/Max/Avg for specified dE, with optionally specified axis XXXX = 1976/2000/ITP {de1976_grey}
(_red/_green/_blue/_cyan/_magenta/_yellow/_other/_all)

... to output a table that lines up nicely like mine.
Or perhaps add "deXXXX_table", and keep de_XXXX outputting on a single line.

Anyway, just ideas, and wanted to share in case it helps someone really.
(Correct Modified Example Download in post below...)

The 'alignment' on the Example Reports is likely down to the Page/Paper size your 'printer' is set to.
The Examples expect A4
You can add/remove the tabs within the Example Layout to change the alignment as needed.
Or use a Table - which is fine too!

And for {...deitp...} the ITP must be lowercase.
(I've corrected the ColourSpace Reporting.pdf doc., as it showed both Caps and lowercase used.)

No printer here, but set to A4. I mean the lining up of the green/amber/red <1/ >1 <2.3 / >2.3 numbers and columns. It's a proportional font so you can't just use tabs or spaces between the columns and have them all line up with the rows above/below them. Hopefully my graphic showing both versions explains it better than I did!

deitp - aha, I will try that! Thanks!

Oh, yeah - good point!
You would have to adjust the tabs based on the characters in use...
But, Tables are there just for that option!

Hopefully more alternate Report Layouts will be shared.
That is the whole idea of them being user designable.

Thought I'd have a look at your Report with the Table layout for dE Coverage...
The upload seems to be incorrect - the values are still aligned with Tabs.
(Just so you know...)

Interesting, thanks for letting me know. I remember did have some trouble initially. I'd imported the example report again to get CS to prompt me with a rename prompt, at which point it let me create a copy called "Before_After_Portrait 2" which I could edit.
When I exported that to upload it here, I did see that the file contained both "Before_After_Portrait 2" (which has tables) and the original "Before_After_Portrait" (which has tabs) - ie lots of nodes, when I opened it in a text editor. It was 51K instead of 26K in size.

Anyway, I've re-exported and hopefully these will work better. You have to select the "Before_After_Portrait 2" and "Single_Landscape_Wide_Graphs 2" layouts (which I'm sure you would have known) from the drop-list.

Yep, your download now has the Table layout changes.
You may want to look the the spacing in the graphs and the later tables though?
Adding the addition of ITP dE has shifted things around.
