Report Designer - pagebreak issues


we are using a Tablix that generates like 35 columns, which easily fit on one page after being filled with data. It seems, that there is a lot more space reserved according to the number of columns, resulting in one or even two unnecessary empty pages after printing or exporting the report.
Any ideas how to fix those additional page breaks?

kind regards

Hi Gert, 
Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion products. 
We suspect that the extra empty pages added due to the sum of report body width and margin exceeds the Report page width. As per MS layout when report width is lesser than the (Body Width + (Report Left Margin + Report Right Margin)), an additional page will be added in print layout. Kindly reduce the body width or increase page width in order to avoid the extra blank pages. Please refer the following link for further details.  
If the issue still persists. Kindly share your report, it will be helpful for us to validate and assist you further.

Thanks a lot for your reply, but it seems there's another issue.
I have completely simplified the report to the one tablix that is responsible for the problem. The content shoould easyily fit on 1 page (29.7*21cm report size) but it doesnt. I'm attaching that sample rdl and a Screenshot of the Viewer with data.

Hi Gert, 
Thanks for your sample report and details. We were able to get mentioned second page issue at our end. This issue may occurs when we add the Column grouping for Tablix with more number of columns. We have created a support incident under your account to promise the fix for this issue and provide patch. Please log on to our support website to check for further updates.
