Advanced design software for mastering ship geometry

 2D Browser/Print



This function allows sorting and printing directly a selection of MAAT Hydro reports in a single global operation, instead of printing them one by one or group by group with 2D viewport's 'Print' or 'Print All' functions.



    After having selected the data to print in the 2D Browser, the following dialog box pops up when the 'Print' function is selected:


All the reports found in the 2D browser selection are listed in the left listbox and the currently selected report is displayed in the right viewport.

If necessary, the reports can be sorted before being printed (simply select an item in the left list and press [Delete] to remove it, [Ctrl][^] to move it up or [Ctrl][v] to move it down).

When the listed reports are sorted in the order you want them to be printed, click on the [Print Listed Reports] button to start printing them .

The [Help] button allows displaying this online help page (Internet access necessary). 

The [Exit] button allows ending the operation.



After clicking on the [Print Listed Reports], the listed reports are printed on the selected printer. 



            At least one report must be selected in the 2D browser to make this function available.

            At least one physical or virtual printer must be installed and available in the printer selector.


Typical use:
