  • Legacy Reporting Glitch

    Good day everyone, I have a problem with legacy reporting in that at times when PC-DMIS outputs to PDF the CAD is suddenly zoomed out, making it difficult to read the report i.e leader lines mashed up etc. Does anyone know how this can be fixed?

    Which PC-DMIS version? Has the CAD been manually transformed? How about F5, Part/Machine?

      Hi Andersl, It's PC-DMIS 2013 MR1 and the Part/Machine setup is right but somehow over time the CAD is zoomed out when viewing the PDF.

        Doublecheck to see that you don't have a feature displaying "out in space"/far away from the model and the "fit to screen" goes bananas due to that.

          Hi vpt.se, are you referring to the graphic display window? I wouldn't have thought the graphic display window had an impact on the reporting even after the page has been created, saved and run properly for a while.

            If you don't have VIEW/ commands in the program, the report will follow what you see in the GW, so if you have zoomed out for som reason, the next report will show zoomed out.

              I see, so even with legacy reporting there must be view commands? We have never had reports with the CAD wildly rotated as it is in the Graphic Display Window, only zoomed out but still in place.

                Insert> Report Command> Create viewset and Recall viewset before each dimension. Just make sure that you orient/resize the CAD the way you want it before you create the viewsets

                  Hi Mike, should the CAD on the report page also change its orientation? When I rotate and make a viewset then recall before the alignment dimension, for example, then open the alignment page, the CAD is still the same orientation as when I first rotated it in the page itself.

                    When I use viewsets, whichever viewset I currently have recalled is how it looks in my report. I turn CADGRAPH/ON in the dimension I want arrows displayed for and use Insert> Report Command> Screen Capture right after the Recall/Viewset command. This forces it to use the orientation/zoom of what is currently displayed in the Graphics Display Window on the report. If I need different views, then I have different viewsets, recalled before the appropriate dimensions. I believe if you turn on specific ID labels when you create a viewset those will also display in the same orientation/location every time too

                  Recall Viewset Align.JPGHere it is recalled before the dimensions, is this correct?

                    Recall Viewset Align (Before Report).JPGI also tried recalling before the page. As far as I understood only custom reports used view sets to determine the CAD orientation in the page. Legacy reports have their own CAD window in the page to set up the view.

                      Here are screenshots of the problem I am having and how it should look, this is taken from within the Hyperview report editor in PC-DMIS.
