I'd like the option to create a separate set of reports for each room in a single action.
Typically I will include the seam plan and worksheet to create a PDF report for my team. When I have bid options I have to go through all the steps for each option. In this process Measure gives me the option to include select Measure pages, but it puts them all in the same PDF document. I want to be able to indicate select pages, but also have the option to create a separate PDF document for each pages selected. I want this to be an option because sometimes multiple pages in one PDF document.
Correction to my original post.
"I'd like the option to create a separate set of reports for each room in a single action."
what I meant to say was that I want the option to create separate reports per Measure page (not per room)
Are you looking for a breakdown by the sheet?
I am already able to get a breakdown per sheet by following these steps:
During the above steps I am able to select multiple sheets to be included in the PDF document, but only one PDF document is created containing all the indicated sheets. What I'm asking for is that each sheet indicated be created in its own PDF document so that if I indicate 3 sheets to be included the result is that 3 PDF documents (one for each sheet) will be created.
The reason I'm asking for this is that Measure is not programmed to remember where I last saved. This means that when I perform actions like: Save, Import, Create PDF Report... I have to step through the entire navigation process, which can be a time killer. This request will greatly improve efficiency for my team.
Might the answer to this be found in Reports? Once you get the report as you like, it can be saved as a template.
Can you elaborate? Are we talking about the same thing?
I use the reports indicated below and create a PDF instead of printing them. I don't use quotes.
Multiple sheets in the step below generate a single PDF document.
Additional reports are available by clicking on the Worksheet and Forms tab:
Click on the Forms icon:
The forms window presents lots of opportunities for customised reports:
I was guessing that is what you were talking about. The Quote button from the print preview is the same as what you show. I've explored that option but don't find it useful for my need. I would find it more useful if I had full control of the content and how it was arranged. I am not sure if quotes/forms can be saved as PDF documents, but even if so I'm sure that this won't solve my issue which is centered around how many steps it takes to save a PDF.
It has been a while since I've worked with forms, but as memory serves this was a process that added yet more steps. I'm looking for options to reduce steps.
Thank you for the suggestion though.
