Use these options to customize the display of items in PA Amplifier reports before generation.

Retrieve last saved position — Select to enable the Save Position command in the Enhanced Report Utility and display drawing elements in the positions where they appear on the drawing before this command is implemented.  Clear this check box to display generated drawing elements in their default positions.

Display options

DCS / PLC attributes — Select to display the attributes of DCS / PLC devices when placing them on the drawing layer.  The displayed attributes are: whether it is connected to a CS tag, channels, number of slots and cabinet name.

Panel location — Select to display the panel location in its unit, on the drawing layer (for example Field, Control room, and so forth).

Terminal discontinuities — Select to display a gaping symbol which indicates discontinuity in a sequence of terminals.  A gaping symbol appears between terminal symbols wherever there is a gap in a terminal sequence.

I/O Channel items — Select to display I/O channels with the channel names at the appropriate positions on the strip.

Show one instance of each cable in drawing — If a cable appears on a drawing more than once, select this option to display only one instance of the cable (all connections are still displayed).

Generating a report when this option is selected, can result in the report being displayed differently each time it is generated.

Connector representation

Default layout — Set the connector representation for the default layout.  Select one of the following:

  • Diagonal — Represents connectors as straight diagonal lines between the short horizontal lines that come from the terminals.

  • Orthogonal — Represents connectors as lines consisting of horizontal and vertical sections.

For a visual comparison of these representations, see Connector Representation Examples.

Cross wiring — Set the connector representation for cross- wiring connections.  Select one of the following:

  • Diagonal — Represents connectors as straight diagonal lines between the short horizontal lines that come from the terminals.

  • Orthogonal — Represents connectors as lines consisting of horizontal and vertical sections.

When generating an enhanced report with many connectors, where the layout settings for the connectors are set to diagonal, the connector names do not appear directly over their respective connectors.
