At Line level, the attribute Selectable indicates whether the line (or lines within the line) is selectable or not. The default value of attribute ‘Selectable’ for repeated lines is ‘YES’, and for non-repeated lines is ‘NO’. The value is also inherited from Parent Part/Line, and the same can be overridden at Line level.

<Logical Formula> must return the value as Yes or No

< Part Name > is the name of the Part which displays additional information about the Line object.

< Condition > if True, will result in an explosion.

Preprinted/PrePrinted Border

The Attribute Preprinted or Preprinted Border can be specified at Part, Line and Field Definitions. These attributes work in conjunction with ‘preprinted/ plain’ button in the Print Configuration screen. When the Preprinted attribute is set to YES, the contents of the current Part, Line or Field will be left blank assuming the same to be pre-printed. When the ‘Preprinted Border’ attribute is set to YES, the borders used in the current Part, Line or Field will be assumed to be pre-printed.


[Line : <Line Name>]

Preprinted : <Logical Value>

Example :
