By default, when you create a chart, it fills the frame in which it is run, and risers and other sections within the chart are sized accordingly. This makes the chart flexible, allowing it to run in large and small containers alike without sacrificing the appearance and legibility of the chart. This automatic sizing also means that you do not need to manually set any size properties for the chart.
You can style the text and cells of different areas of a report to visually highlight or separate different groups of values, such as columns, column headers, across field values, and totals, in order to call attention to certain information in a report.

Using WebFOCUS Designer, you can create a single content item – either a chart or report – or you can create a page that contains multiple items. There are two different kinds of pages. These pages are similar in appearance and general functionality, but provide a slightly different set of options, particularly when it comes to filtering behavior. Show a finished page
You can run a portal from the following locations on the WebFOCUS start page:
