10.1.2 Working in the Printout Report
Working in the Printout Report
When the printout report is open, the report navigator is displayed on the left and the page view with the preview of the printout on the right.
In the navigator, the individual chapters of the report can be arranged in any way by using the drag-and-drop function. The following should be noted: If you move a chapter to a Symbol (the folder on the left in the figure), it is inserted after this chapter. However, if you move the chapter to a Title (Text), it is added as a subchapter.
If you move multiple chapters, we recommend switching off the [Immediate Refresh].
The shortcut menu (see Figure 10.4) provides additional options for adjusting the printout report. As is common for Windows applications, a multiple selection is possible by using the [Ctrl] and [⇧] keys.
The selected chapter is deleted. If you want to reinsert it, use the selection (go to the menu and select Edit → Selection).
The selected chapter starts on a new page. It is marked by a red pin in the navigator (such as the Results - Summary chapter shown in the figure above).
You have access to the global selection that is described on the following pages. The selected chapter is preset.
Some general properties of the selected chapter can be modified.
In the dialog box, you can change the Title of the chapter and enter an Additional Explanation, which appears in the left margin of the report. The additional text can be displayed and hidden, like the info pictures of the chapter (e.g. drawings of cross-sections or loading).
To look at a particular section in the printout report, click the corresponding chapter in the navigator.
The Edit menu provides further navigation functions. You can also use the corresponding buttons in the report toolbar to access these functions.
