Properties Dialog, Levels Tab
Contains controls used to turn on and turn off levels by specifying level override entries. The Levels tab appears in the Properties dialog.
|New|| Creates a level override entry that allows you to turn on and turn off levels. By default, Print Organizer prints levels in the design file as they were last saved since a print definition does not store level tables. In other words, levels that are on in the design file will print and levels that are off in the design file will not print. The purpose of a level override entry is to allow you to override the default behavior, if necessary.
For example, suppose level 6 is off in the design file, but you want this level to print. You can create the following level override entry to turn on level 6.
The level 6 entry in the Level column represents the level you want to turn on or turn off. The " * " in the File/Reference column tells the system to search in the master file and all references. The On entry in the On/Off column tells the system to turn on the level indicated in the Level column.
It is important to note that turning on a level in a reference does not automatically turn on the reference. If the reference is turned off in the design file, it must first be turned on in Print Organizer’s References tab, and then the level can be turned on in the Levels tab. Also, if you have multiple level override entries in the Print Levels list box, the system will apply them in descending order, starting at the top of the list and working downward. So, if you turn on level 6 in the first entry and turn it off in a later entry, it will not print.
To select a level override entry or set of level override entries:
When you click the New icon, the software displays the following entry.
To edit a value, double-click the value in the Level, File/Reference, or On/Off column. In the Level column, a drop-down list box is provided to allow you to select a level name or a level filter. You can also type in a level name, a level filter, or a regular expression. In the File/Reference column, you can type in a file name, a reference logical name, or a regular expression. The On/Off column permits you to select On or Off from a drop-down list box. For more information on entering regular expressions, see Regular Expressions.
