My company is working on upgrading to 2021.2 and I experienced this issue. I was able to use the workaround above for the Report Text Tools. I configured my Render Tool to "Insert Whitespace Between Records" and the whitespace line is showing up as black as well. Any ideas about a workaround for these black cells?
