Text reports fine tuning

I would like to fine tune decendant text reports, but have not found a way to do it with built-in routines. Is there a relatively easy way to add some features with minor programming skills?

Modifying built-in reports should be avoided because it is harder to recover when it gets screwed up. It is better to hack in add-ons.

There is a Report Writing tutorial in the wiki.

But we still need a tutorial on how to find & copy a “built-in” to the plugins folder and then convert it to a functioning 3rd Party add-on … where it would be safer for experimenting.

Thanks for your advice!

I will look at the Report Writing tutorial, maybe it will give some ideas what to do.

Improving the those instructions (like adding anything you had to seek out to the “See also” section) would be welcome.
