Print with Index Plot

Use the Enable Index Plot function to create a print output based on an individually drawn sketch. This way the user is enabled to produce a print series along a line object, e.g. a stream center line.

In order to generate a index plot first select a print template that provides this function (Additional buttons under Print by Indexline). After defining a specific print scale click the button Create and draw a line inside the map. It is possible to move existing vertices by click/hold the left mouse button and drag the vertex to another position. Finish the line with a double-click.

After you finished the line, WebOffice 10.9 SP1 will calculate a preview, showing the position of the print sheets along the index line. Click print to start the creation of a print output document.

If an Overview Page was enabled in the WebOffice 10.9 SP1 project configuration, the first page of the output shows the position of the following single sheets.

Similar to the print series, you can define the border color of the overview page if the option has been activated.

 

Note: The only supported output format for print series is PDF. Rotated data frames or plots are currently not supported either.

Note: See chapter Print for details about the tool configuration in WebOffice author standalone.

Note: See chapter Template (File Name) for details about the configuration of print templates and subsequent chapters about the available function fields.

Note: See chapter Enable Index Plot for details about the configuration of the enable index plot element.

 

 

Configuring the attribute Seamless print: with Yes (on the configuration sub node Enable Index plot? in WebOffice author) will lead to an output (PDF), where the pages are joined seamlessly. In that case the user will get a merged PDF document with an optional overview page.

 

Note: The seamless print option on Index plot requires an individually drawn straight sketch!

Note: To get an output where the pages are joined seamlessly, you have to configure a corresponding print template. Therefor you have to set in the data frame properties the size with 21cm and the height with 29,7cm if the page-merging is based on Din-A4.
