This topic describes the title blocks that are available in the Title Block Customization column of the Report Management window.  The Domain Administrator can select the appropriate title block and assign it to a Smart Instrumentation report.

Template Title Blocks

Template title blocks come shipped with Smart Instrumentation.  The users need to associate template title blocks with Smart Instrumentation manually, as any custom title block.  The default location of the template title blocks is <Smart Instrumentation home folder>\Psr.  After users associate the template title blocks with Smart Instrumentation, they become available for selection in the Title Block Customization column of the Report Management dialog box.

The following template title blocks are available:

DEFAULT — Associated by default with a Smart Instrumentation report.  You can use this title block in any module.

Default TB with IN units — This title block is the file Default TB with IN Units.psr, created using 1/1000 inch units.  You can use this title block in any module.

Default TB with IN units (with signed By field) — This title block is the file Default TB with IN Units (with Signed By field).psr, which contains the Signed By field for revisions.  This title block is created using 1/1000 inch units.  You can use this title block in any module.

Default TB with PB units — This title block is the file Default TB with PB Units.psr, created using PowerBuilder units.  This title block is not suitable for specifications.

Default TB with PB units (with Signed By field) — This title block is the file Default TB with PB Units (with signed By field).psr, which contains the Signed By field for revisions.  This title block is created using PowerBuilder units.  This title block is not suitable for specifications.

Specs Default TB with PB units — This title block is the file Specs Default TB with PB Units.psr, created using PowerBuilder units.  This title block is only suitable for specifications, after the System Administrator, when making or modifying the current domain definitions, selects the Standard title block assignment method.  If you print specs using the A4 sheet size, this title block is fully compatible with all the library forms and does not require any manual adjustments.  Note, however, that if you want to print specs using the Letter sheet size, you must first modify the Specs Default TB with PB Units.psr title block in InfoMaker by reducing the title block height.  Removing two revision rows from the title block is enough to make it appear correctly in a printout of any spec based on a library form.

Custom Title Blocks

These are title blocks that users created using InfoMaker, and then added to Smart Instrumentation using the options in the Title Blocks dialog box.  You can use custom title blocks in any module.  You can assign a custom title block to a particular report only when the units of measure with which the selected title block has been created are the same as the units of measure defined for that report.  Title blocks whose units of measure are different from the units of measure defined for the report do not appear in the Title Block Customization list.  When creating a title block in InfoMaker, you can use either 1/1000 inch units, or PowerBuilder units.

Some reports do not support custom title blocks.  For these reports, the value Default appears in the Title Block Customization, and the option to select a custom title block from this list is disabled.

  • As a basis for custom title blocks, it is recommended to use the supplied template title blocks.

  • If in the Plant Hierarchy dialog box, you define too long names of the plant hierarchy levels (up to 50 characters are allowed), in the default title blocks, truncation may occur in the fields that display the names of the plant hierarchy levels and the specific level items.  If you must use long name strings, to prevent truncation, we recommend that users create custom title blocks and provide enough room in the PLANT_NAME, AREA_NAME, and UNIT_NAME fields.
