Mirror Image Error on Smartform Prints
The problem we had was, we were having a mirror image preview on a smartform we created a couple of weeks ago which was working absolutely fine on Live System as well as on the Development System.
This is the true form result This is the false (flipped) form result.
We thought about almost all the possibilities on ABAP side, and Basis side with the other developers and consultants since it was looking like it was a “printer” issue.
However what I have found was, it was a language issue on configuration side on print configurations.
Since the printing configuration on module side was created in Arabic language “AR” by mistake (even though the current customer never uses Arabic), one of our functional consultants changed that language into “AR” so everything on Smartform in QA system was flipping to right-justified. (As you know Arabic is a RTL).
Once we changed the language back into language “EN” everything worked perfectly!
Might be helpful for someone out there.
Have a lovely day!
