Yes, it is expected as such. Read about the details behind in the announcement blog (for v15 R2):
In short - in 32 bit it was a plugin, based on old (Altura/Carbon) technology, so needed to be rewritten.
In 64 bit it is fully rewritten in plain 4D code.
The quick report is in fact 3 parts:
- a report engine
- a set of commands to design the content of the report
- an user interface using the set of commands to design the report and using the engine to print.
As result, you are not required anymore to “take it or leave it”. With 32 bit, either you liked it, or you could not use it at all.
Now you can download even the source code of the quick report editor:
4D Partner channel > 4D Partners Worldwide > Announcements > Publication of components source code
Open it, modify it, use it in your application as you like.
Either by using it as the report command in 4D (base your code on method “00_OPEN_WIZARD”), or embedded in your form (base it on form “NQR”, don’t forget init code from “00_OPEN_WIZARD”
A little bit more work upfront, but resulting in much more flexibility.
If you visited 4D Summit 2018 you could watch the recording of the break out session for this topic, showing more examples how to use it. (title: Modify or Customize 4D’s Internal Dialogs • Summit 2018)
