frxReport.DesignReport does nothing

Just installed FastReport 2021.2.1 in Delphi 11.1 from Getit and tried a simple test:

unit Unit33;



 Winapi.Windows, Winapi.Messages, System.SysUtils, System.Variants, System.Classes, Vcl.Graphics,

 Vcl.Controls, Vcl.Forms, Vcl.Dialogs, Vcl.StdCtrls, frxClass, frxDesgn;


 TForm33 = class(TForm)

  frxReport1: TfrxReport;

  Button1: TButton;

  procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);


  { Private declarations }


  { Public declarations }



 Form33: TForm33;


{$R *.dfm}

procedure TForm33.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);





DesignReport does nothing. No error. Some documentation mentions having a TfrxDesigner, but this isn't an object in this version.

Any ideas what I need to do to get this going?

    It seems you are use free FR Embarcadero edition. It doesn't have run-time designer support. Use FR Standard or higher

  • Thanks. I wasn't aware of the restriction. We are in the process of licensing.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
