These options enable you to customize your preferences for the various options and activities that you can perform when working with multi-tag specs in the Specifications module. These include master tag display, the SEE LIST label customization, tag assignment to process data cases, and so forth.
To access the multi-tag specification preferences, on the Preferences dialog box, in the tree view pane, click beside Specifications and then click Multi-Tag Specifications.
Use default print layout — This option affects the layout of the individual tag list page printout for multi-tag specifications. If you select the check box, the default grid layout, with one header per column, is applied. If you clear the check box, a multi-line layout is applied to the specification format, if defined. It is possible to customize a multi-line layout to display several headers per column. Also, you can modify the font and column size.
Where no other format is defined, the default print layout will be used whether or not this check box is selected.
Multi-tag specification options
Show master tag — Allows you to show the master tag number (in parentheses) in the Page 1 tab under the General section in the Tag Number field (next to SEE LIST).
Use only governing case for multi-tag specs — Allows you to specify that only one tag in a multi-tag specification can be assigned to a case (the governing case). This preference only applies to new multi-tag specifications that you create. After you select the check box, when creating a multi-tag specification, only one record of the same tag appears in the Multi-Tag tab of the specification.
Selecting this check box affects the way Smart Instrumentation displays tag records of the same tag that is assigned to multiple process data cases. For example, in the Find Items dialog box of the Specifications module, when a tag is assigned to multiple cases, the software only displays the governing case.
If you clear the check box, when you create a multi-tag specification, you can add cases in the Multi-Tag tab of the specification.
Customize the SEE LIST label — Allows you to change the default label SEE LIST, which appears in the main pages of a multi-tag specification. In a multi-tag specification, the SEE LIST label appears in every field that the multi-tag list format contains. You can enter any combination of alpha-numeric characters (up to 20 characters) or leave the box blank.
Moving and removing tags from multi-tag list
This option enables you specify how the software behaves when you remove a tag from a multi-tag list, or move a tag from a multi-tag to a single-tag specification.
Skip individual confirmation — Sets the software to skip a confirmation message each time you remove a tag from a multi-tag list, or move a tag from a multi-tag list to a single-tag specification.
If you clear the check box, the software displays a confirmation message each time you remove a tag from a multi-tag list, or move a tag from a multi-tag list to a single tag specification.
