I love the new feature of interactive reports. ie drill down.

This has created a new scenario though. We now may have objects on the report that we want to see and have available in preview mode, say buttons for navigation or a close button, but don't want them actually printed to the output copy whether paper or pdf etc. The button for example does have a 'printable' property but if that is unchecked then it does not show in the preview mode.

So it would be good if there was a way for these new interactive objects to still show in the preview mode (otherwise there is not much point to them :)) but not actual print on to the hard copy.

It would be great if this drill down feature could be extendet to Charts, but knowing that alpha depends on simplecharts for this it may be a little more difficult, but still it would be great.
