    I checked the AR 16 documentation but could not find any reference. Currently using VS 2019 and AR 15 in a dotnet 5 project, we have to create a separate dotnet framework project and link to reports in the dotnet 5 project in order to use the designer.
    Is that still required for VS 2022 and AR 16 and dotnet 6?

    To be clear, this is about section reports, which are the only kind of reports we use.

    Unfortunately yes, you still need to create a separate dot net framework project to use the
    designer for code-based SectionReports in ActiveReports 16 and .Net 6.

    Thank you. Is there any roadmap available - is creating section based reports without the extra project something which will eventually be supported again?

    For the time being no roadmap is available. We will let you know if there is any update on this.
