Column heading misaligned when including Appeal Description in Gift Detail and Summary Report

When running the Gift Detail and Summary Report users may notice the Appeal Description column heading is misaligned. This occurs when running the Detail report and setting the report orientation to Landscape. The Appeal Description column heading is right-justified while all other column headings are left-justified.
We may use one of the following alternative methods to view the Appeal Description:  

1. Change the report orientation to Portrait and preview the report again.
2. Export the report to another file format and adjust the column headings there.
3. Create a Gift output query from the report and include that query in a Gift Export to export the Appeal Description.
 

We have evaluated this issue as a potential defect and we have determined it will not be addressed in the software in its current state.  In this case, the risks and challenges outweigh the potential benefit of resolving this issue.
