Choose the menu item "File|New" to create a new report, or press the corresponding speed button. The report expert will be shown, which you can use for fast and easy creation of a first report design.
The report expert asks you which kind of report you want to create, which dataset to use and how to layout the report. The needed report elements will be added automatically to the report. After the expert has finished you can continue editing the report to make it fit your needs.
If you select "New empty report" as the report type, a completely empty report will be created and the report expert will exit. You must then add all report bands and datasets manually.
