I reported this as a bug, but I was told by ClientCare that "this is working as was designed". I hope a post here in Idea Exchange could change that.
Today: There are an unmotivated space before the text rows are shown in the tables in the dashboard reportlets making them look really bad (and I have a hard time explaing for end users why the reports do not use the space that are really there). The text should of course be left lined and not be placed somewhere in the middle.
As it is now we need to use large instead of medium sized reportlets and medium instead of small reportlets to be able to see the text.
Idea: All rows in all tables in reportlets should be left lined.
