Using Formfeed For Report Printouts

Posted by Tony Tillett on Aug 15, 2017 11:16:49 AM

Often when producing Dimensional Measurement Reports to the printer, there is a continuity problem such that Textual Report Comments become disjointed from the dimension as they appear on 2 separate pages. This can make the report look unprofessional and lazily done. For example:

Example 1: Printer Comment appears on Page 1 and the Dimensional report associated with the Comment appears on Page 2. To overcome this problem the user can choose to use the ‘Formfeed’ command.

The [Formfeed] command can be found in the ‘Insert’ tab in the top menu. First choose the [Report Command] and then select the [Formfeed] option.

This is an example of the Formfeed command in the program

The result of the Formfeed option ‘tidies’ up the presentation of Reports.
