  • Showing features in V4.1: how can I choose which ones to show???

    In my report window, I want to show the graphical analysis for some of my features, certainly NOT all.

    I tried to do that via the dimension tabs, but that seems to have no effect. You can also right click in the report window in a way that the REPORT pop-up shows up. Then you can activate the " Show features" option. But that shows every single feature, regardless if it is marked or not.

    So I have either none, or all. Scratch, scratch, scratch....... No ideas beyond this.

    Anybody else some ideas????? Any help will be appreciated.... I am kind of stuck right now.

    Jan,

    You should be able to unmark the features you don't want to show and then re-execute. After reexecuting, make sure you have the View Last Eecute Report Mode icon from the Report window's toolbar selected. That should only show those features that you executed. Selecting View Report Mode from the toolbar will let you view all the features.

    If you marked and executed all your features, I don't beleive unmarking and redrawing the Report window removes those unmarked features from the Report window because their original execution is still stored in the report's memory.

      You aren't looking for the ON/OFF toggle for showing analysis are you. In command mode it is part of the dimension block. I'm not sure I have much bussiness commenting on 4.1 stuff so forgive me if I am wrong.

      All of your questions are making me want to be running 4.1 though.

        It is still somewhat buggy, but I like it. Quite a bit actually. But then again, I literally never ran anything else but V4.0 or later. So I have no frame of reference...

          Didn't work. I brought in my program, just for kicks a marked everything I had and then deliberatly "unmarked" what I did not wanted and saved. I found the correct NC journal file and executed, as you suggested. All the time my Report was in the View Last Execute Report Mode mode. After this, the report window is completely blank. I toggeled back and forth. The View Last Execute Report Mode mode keeps giving a totally blank screen. The View Report Mode gives me normal report, until I hit Show Features and at that point it shows everything in my program file, regardless of marking status... Very annoying...

          I made a file with screen captures, but it is too big for the bulletin board.

            Sorry Jan. I don't know what to tell you. The instructions I gave work for me... but then again, I'm not running NC. It might have something to do with that.

              I also have no experience with any version over 3.7mr3.

              In 3.7mr3 if you go edit-graphics display window-feature appearance, you get a window with a list of your features. Here you can select individual features by name or by clicking on them in the graphics display window. Then, you can toggle on and off whether they are displayed or not.

              Of course, in 3.7mr3 you can also just right click on a feature label and select "hide feature"

              I'm guessing that 4.1 is a completely different animal though.

              HTH somebody at least.

                Sorry to be slow in responding(too much tequila). Have you created any view sets? What you need to do is, go to edit>graphics window>features, and set the graphics on/off as you wish and labels on/off as you wish and then create a view set and then imediately recall the view set and then go to operations>screen capture> to report and you should be good to go. One caveat if you have diminfo set up the graphics of them will be erased if you don't insert them after any/all view sets that do not use diminfo stuff.

                  Intentionally deleted by me. This issue is still open. The previous message referred to another problem!
