We were working on an existing ColdFusion Report Builder (CFRB) report, and it ran fine and all that. But the mere act of just saving it seemed to corrupt the reports display.
What we found was that some of the item/fields don't retain all the metadata that they're supposed to. Turned out they were set to not visible or they were set too small.
Additionally another issue is that your desktop needs to have all the fonts utilized by the report.
Thanks to Jon Hirschi for figuring this out!
