Symptoms

Although you tried to print a dashboard page with prompts in horizontal format, the prompts are printed in vertical format.

You can reproduces the issue with SampleAppLite.rpd.

Reproducible step:

1) Create a new prompt with three or four columns, for example,
   Per Name Year
   Per Name Half
   Per Name Quarter
   Per Name Month

2) Select the "Row-based Layout" option in the tool bar (two icons to the right of the green plus sign).  Save the prompt.

3) Add the prompt to a dashboard page and run it.

4) Print the dashboard page to PDF or Excel file.

Note that the prompt appears in the PDF/Excel output in column-based layout rather than row-based.
