2. You see that the layout of the Bookmark is not correct. The Cell Boxes are expanded as shown below

Causes:

This issue happens when you have changed the template of the Bookmark

Example : Width and height of the Web Items

There could be also multiple changes which results in the issue

Explanation :

As specified in the note 1089447, any changes to the underlying template or query of the bookmark is not supported and may cause unexpected results.

When a bookmark is created, the bookmark stores the state of all web items and data provider in a XML format. When any change is done to the structure of the underlying template or query, the state of web items on a template cannot be restored correctly and hence unexpected results might be seen.

If you create a new bookmark, you can check that all states are being stored correctly and it is only the old bookmarks which would be showing this behavior.

Resolution :

Create new bookmarks for theĀ  bookmarks which are affected by the issue.

You can also consider using RSWR_BOOKMARK_ADJUST report specified in the note 1408383, (Bookmark mass change report) and try to fix the existing bookmarks
