14. Report templates
Previous pageTable of contentsNext page
Most of the time, printouts use a standardized appearance and layout: date in the upper-right corner in a specific format, page footer with print time and file name, logo in the upper-left corner, etc.
The report templates are used to easily standardize the layout of your reports.

View of a report template in the report editor.
Template used in different reports.
The elements that belong to the template are identified by a yellow square.
Overridden template elements are identified by a blue square.
A report template can be created:
  • via the icon in the quick access buttons. In the window for creating a new element, click on "Report" then "Report template".
  • from the current report (on the "Home" pane, in the "General" group, expand "Save" and select "Save as a template").
To create a report based on a template, select the template that will be used during the report creation.
The characteristics of the elements can be dissociated from the template. For example, dissociate the position of a control from the template to move the control elsewhere while keeping other changes (code, style, etc.). This is referred to as inheritance. In this case, the elements are identified by a blue square.
