Clicking on the filter button highlights the input fields in bright green. These give the option of searching for a specific element or group of elements.
To do this, set the filter you require and acknowledge the function with “Filter”.
This returns all records that have the desired filter characteristic.
You can switch between records using the buttons “Switch to next record” or “Switch to previous record”.
Clicking on the button resets the filter and the total number of all records—in this case trenches—is displayed again.
Create new record
Click on the button to create a new record. It is possible to populate a new record with all yellow-highlighted fields.
Once you have filled out all mandatory fields (red) in the form, click on “Add” to create the record.
You can use the button to change all filtered records at once. “Change globally” executes the function.
You can print the reports for a form using the button, as shown in Window 3. Select the type of report to be printed and the report preview will open in item 4 with various settings options. A logo can be displayed in the top-right corner of the report. The path for the logo is set in the NET options in the “General II” tab (item 4).
You can use the button to create and position labels associated with the selected object. As shown in items 2 and 3 of the screenshot, you can select the label definition and the category.
