Setting Header and Footer
The dialog window allows to define properties of the document header and footer. The "print header (footer)" check box determines whether to print the document header (footer).
Header and footer lines may contain an arbitrary text and inserted objects implicitly defined by the program. These objects receive program information such as:
- From the "Company data" dialog window (company name, logo, address)
- From the "Project" frame (name and task description, author)
- From the document system data (date, time, page numbering)
Objects can be input using the "Insert" button (the button opens a list of objects). The button is active only if the cursor is found in one of the line that allows to insert text (object). Inserted objects are written in an internal format different from other text and placed in curly brackets.
The program allows to defin various headers for the first page or odd and even pages, respectively. Individual headers are in such a case defined in separate tabs.
The "Default", selection "Save settings as default" option sets the input header and footer parameters as default for the newly created data. The assumed default setting is common for all our programs. Different computer users may use different settings. Selection "Adopt default settings" enables to adopt the default settings of the GEO5 programs to any opened task, which had the settings different.
Writing format and the resulting view are evident from the following pictures.
