The options on this page allow you to determine the default alignment of the title block, the relative position of the drawing area, and the working area margins for all enhanced reports of the selected report type.

Alignment — Displays the position of the title block origin and the edges of the drawing area on the page, when you use a symbol file (.sym) as the title block.  Drag the title block icon to the position you require.  You can position the title block in any corner of the drawing or at the center of any of its edges.  Note that the alignment does not change the orientation of the title block.

Horizontal — Select the horizontal alignment for the title block origin: left, center, or right.  Note that you cannot select center for both the horizontal and vertical alignments.

Vertical — Select the vertical alignment for the title block origin: top, center, or bottom.  Note that you cannot select center for both the horizontal and vertical alignments.

Drawing area relative to title block — Specifies where the drawing area should be located in relation to the title block origin.  For example, if you place the title block at the bottom left corner, you can place the drawing to the right of the title block, above the title block, or above and to the right of the title block.  If you place the title block at the center of any of the edges of the drawing, you can only specify one position for the drawing.

Reset — Resets the title block in its default position at the bottom left corner of the page, with the drawing area above the title block.

Size — Allows you to specify the area of the drawing sheet that the title block can occupy by setting its maximum size.

Units — Select the units to specify for the title block height or width: inches, millimeters, or twips.

Maximum size — Type a value for the maximum height or width of the title block.  The dimension affected, height or width, depends on the alignment specified for the title block.

Set size — Select this check box if you want to specify a maximum size for the title block.  Clear the check box to allow the title block to take up as much space as needed on the title block.  It is recommended that you select this check box if the title block is very tall or very wide, to avoid overlap with other graphical elements on the drawing sheet.

Working area margins — Displays the margins of the initial working area on the drawing page.  Drag the edges of the working area to set the margins to the position you require.  Note that when you set the working area margins, the defined area includes the title block.  The software generates the drawing starting from the top left corner at the position relative to the title block that you specified on the Title Block tab.  If any drawing elements extend beyond the right and bottom limits of the working area, the software displays those elements on a new sheet.

Units — Select the units to specify for the working area margins: inches, millimeters, or twips.

Left — Specifies the width of the left margin of the working area in the specified units.

Right — Specifies the width of the right margin of the working area in the specified units.

Top — Specifies the width of the top margin of the working area in the specified units.

Bottom — Specifies the width of the bottom margin of the working area in the specified units.

Reset — Resets the working area margins with a default value of 20 twips for all margins.
