I am working with the stock opportunity reports in Act 2013 Premium. Whether I do a full lookup (Open, Closed - Won, Closed - Lost, and Inactive, for an "All" date range, and for all users) or try to drill down just to a particular record manager, the report ends up with a lot of blank white space which is wasteful and hard to read.
This is a stock report from Act, no customizing has been attempted--so what could be causing this? How do I fix it?

Which report are you using? In most cases the standard report output appearance can be improved by using a lookup in advance to limit the report to the most likely records and then running the report of the current lookup. Generally the white space is caused by the inclusion of records that are processed but eliminated by the report filtering.
Additional elimination of unwanted white space would require reformatting the report template using a variety of tricks that in some cases require direct modification of the template XML code.
