Document template for DocumentComposer

To generate a report with the DocumentComposer you need a Word document template (i.e., a ”* .dot” file). This contains the instructions for formatting the report (see chapter Definition of the set for the report).

If you do not enter a template, the DocumentComposer will provide such a document template for you. This is used for the generation of the reports.

The first page of your document is formatted as title page. The second page serves as basis for the formation of the summary. These pages can be adjusted directly in the document according to your preferences. They will appear at the top of the generated report.
The template integrated from process4.biz provides several formatting features that you can change and adapt so that the layout of the report suits your needs.

Styles

Several predefined styles. If one of these is selected in the template, it is applied within the specified part of the document.

P4B_Title

Used for the title of the report. You can choose a font, and other options for the title.

P4B_Diagramm

Used for diagrams placement (is applied in a row). You can mark a section as well as defining a distance before and after the diagram, etc.

P4B_TextBlock

Used for object properties that are exported in the form of series. All format options can be used here.

P4B_TextBlockNamed

Used for object properties with attribute names that are exported in the form of series. All format options can be used here. Note that this property name and its value are separated by a tab.

P4B_QueryTable

P4B_QueryTableItem

Used for texts in table cells for query values. You can define a special font or color for the text.

P4B_QueryList
