Help >> Template printing

The program has the ability to print documents according to prepared templates, using the geometric and semantic information of the objects of the exchange file containing land plots. Templates for printing are constantly being finalized and new ones are being developed. If you have a need for a new template, please contact me. I'll try to help.

To create a document from a template:
Open an exchange file containing one or more parcels. The exchange file must not contain objects with critical geometry errors (such errors are highlighted in bold and red in the list of messages). If the file contains several sections and you need a document containing information about one of them - mark the section you need in the list on the information panel. If none of the parcels is checked, the document will be created using information about all parcels. If several sites are marked, only templates that support the ability to take information from several sites can be used.
Select the menu item File→Print by template.
In the window that appears, select a template from the list. Select the paper size and offset of the document area from the edge of the paper.
Each template has its own settings. As a rule, you can select the scale of the lot boundary drawing (if the template contains a lot boundary drawing). Also, you can always choose a base font size for all template texts. If you choose a larger size, all fonts will be proportionately larger. Smaller - respectively will be less. For many templates, you can choose the name of the signatories, area units.
After selecting all the template settings, click the Ok button. An electronic document will be created according to the selected template using information on the selected (selected) sites.

The automatically generated print document will be displayed in the Print Preparation window.
 View control tool. Allows you to change the scale, location of the document window. Additional options for managing the view of the document window are similar to those described in the drawing section.
 Send the prepared electronic document to the printer.
 Load from a file / write to a file a template print document. The recorded document retains all information about the data from the exchange file - it can be opened on another computer regardless of the original exchange file. Changes to the source file that will be made after the document prepared for printing has been written will not change this document.
 Add/remove document pages
 Add to the document one of the fragments using information about the selected area. For example - a table of coordinates of the points of the site, a drawing of the site, etc.
 Add an auxiliary element to the document - an text, a line, etc.
 Universal tool - allows you to mark document elements, drag and resize their borders. The right mouse button on the selected drawing element brings up a context menu with commands specific to the selected element.
 Additional options for managing the view. Changes the document display scale and the view window so that all pages of the document can be seen in the window at the maximum size.

All document elements can be copied/pasted from the clipboard - these actions are available from the context menu on the marked element.
When you mark one element of a document, its settings are displayed in the right pane. For simple elements, these are the outline style, the fill style, and the text style.

Consider the two main constituent elements of a document
- in the table settings you can set the table border style, background fill style, table caption style. All these attributes are set for all table cells, except those in which the individual values ​​of these attributes are set.
The Increase/Decrease buttons act on the font size and indents of all cells - increasing/decreasing them by 10%.
In the "Size (X, Y)" fields you see the number of table cells horizontally and vertically. You can enter the quantity you need and click the "Set" button - the size of the table will change.
- the "Edit" item is available in the context menu, allowing you to switch to the table editing mode. In this mode, you can change the size of the columns/rows of the table, change the texts in the cells. You can manage advanced settings for marked cells using the context menu item "Format Cells..." on the marked cells. In the "Format Checked Cells" dialog, you can set the styles of borders, backgrounds, texts of table cells.
Also in the context menu there is an option to merge/unmerge the marked cells. Exit edit mode - Esc key or click outside the element area.

- in the drawing settings, a list of drawing elements is displayed at the top. Select the list line - the settings of the corresponding category or drawing element will be shown below.
For example, you want to change the font of the inscription on the plot or the template of the inscription itself - select the item "Labels on the parcel" in the list and enter the values ​​you need. Things are a little more complicated for Lands/Restrictions/Subleases. For each of these categories there is a general style setting, but you can override it by assigning your own style to the selected object. For example, for the sites in the "cadastral plan" template, a general style is set, but you can select one specific site from the list and set its fill to solid red. Now if you change the fill setting for all areas, this area will have a red fill until you turn off the "fill" checkbox in its settings.
- the "Edit" item is available in the context menu, allowing you to proceed to editing the drawing. You can correct the location of all labels on drawing objects or hide/show them - to switch these modes, there are items "Move labels mode" and "Mode of changing the visibility of labels" of the menu.
For semi-automatic placement of labels in the context menu, there are four items
"Place labels automatically" - this operation is performed on the drawing when forming the document. However, if you changed the label font or other settings, then in order to place the labels without overlapping again and, possibly, hide some of the labels that overlap, you must perform this operation from the menu.
"Show all labels" - makes all hidden labels visible.
"Hide overlapping labels" - hides some of the labels that overlap each other so that the remaining visible labels do not intersect.
"Move overlapping labels" - changes the location of the labels so that they do not intersect with each other. There is no guarantee that the labels will not intersect after this operation, because the distance it can move the label from its object (point or line) is limited.
