When 'Reports' is selected, there is only one option: 'Use Wizard to Create Report...'. The option to 'Create Report in Design View' is missing.

I have converted to a 'split' db using HSQLDB.jar ver 2.4.0

In creating my 'split' db environment, I used the attached file as per the instructions. As you will see when you open it, the same problem exists!

Converting to split has no bearing on this. It is typically because the pane is too small:

Either use the mouse to make pane larger (cursor will change to double arrow, then drag down) or simply scroll top Tasks area:

Don't know where this split came from but it is not what I typically use - this one or this one.

However, even with what you posted, I don't see a problem:

Has to be something in your system/distro.

No, I'm afraid not. If only it was that easy, I might have worked it out for myself :-)

The option is not there.

Can you post sample DB. Given you enough Karma. Please no Confidential/Personal data. Have never heard or seen the likes.

OK, thanks for that. Strange!

I'll have a look around my system and 'google' some more. I'll post an update if I find anything.

Keep in mind this could be a distro LO version problem.

Yes, it does seem to be LO version/distro related - see link below:
