Now that we have looked at the output for the Internal Pressure Calculations, we will learn how to include different items in your final report.

  1. While holding down the CTRL key on your keyboard, click on the items that you want included from the Report List (left) window.

  2. After you select the items, we are ready to generate the report.

  3. If you want to send the output to a printer, then click Print . This prints the report immediately with page numbers and headings on each page.

There are other options. For example, you might find it convenient to send the output to Microsoft Word® if you have it installed on your computer. This feature allows you to edit the results and add your own notes or comments.

You can send the output to a text file by selecting Print to file. You are prompted for a file name. This will be a text file with a filename extension of .txt. You will be able to access this file with any text editor such as Notepad, or Microsoft Word. When you send the output to a text file, all the colored text will be lost, and will simply be in black font color.

You can also the output to a PDF file by clicking Print to PDF on the Preview/Print pane of the File tab. Bookmarks are created for each report included in the file, so you can easily select the report you wish to view. If you select Insert 2D Page or Insert 3D Page, you can also include the model of the vessel in the PDF file.
