Settings in 3D Inspection System software allow one to customize the styling and look of various common types of elements that make up the final inspection report printout. 

Although the styles are automatically applied to the inspection information to eliminate the need to manually edit, the options allow great flexibility to reflect or represent your company colors and style, as can be seen in  various Report Examples shown here.

Narrative report elements or components print within the body of your Header/Footer document. Access your layout settings while an inspection is open using File > Page setup.  Each type of report element may have separate margins, font, border, spacing, and other options as determined here. Generally all items of like kind format the same way unless a custom override template was specified for a particular item in the forms themselves.

To see a general representation of how current your Page Setup settings affect various report elements, tap Preview on the Page Setup window.  Here is an explanation of the types of elements that narrative reports may use, although not all may be present or used in every report.

Form: Labels for main inspection sections, e.g. Electric, Plumbing, Roof, etc

Heading: Primary labels or main divisions of each form.

Rating Header: A legend or header area used to identify or label your columns of ratings, if the ratings feature was used in the forms. For example, ratings such as Good, Fair, Poor might have a rating header printed above the columns labeled "Good Fair Poor" or perhaps "G F P". Ratings headers may print in several locations depending on the Ratings settings used for the form group.

Subheading / Rated subheading & Narrative Text: Field labels and field comments printed below a heading. If the Ratings feature image\Viewblue.gif is used, "Rated subheading" areas may use different overall margins or settings than regular non-rated "Subheadings". "Narrative text" is the actual inspection comments, including narratives and typed information entered into the report writer fields.

Subheadings and Narrative Text (or Rated subheadings and narrative text) always function as a combined unit when formatted for printing. If the narrative text left margin starts right of the subheading right margin, both will print on the same row. Otherwise, narrative text will print a row below the subheading label.

Note: The Text Color for narrative text is only the default color for "plain text" typed directly into new inspection fields or selected from menus. Any rich text formatting (bold, italics, color, etc) in form items or applied to text in the report itself always overrides the default narrative text color. If Report Preferences are set to print narrative text in monochrome, then that overrides all narrative text to black no matter what.

Diagram: Controls formatting for Schematic "titles". To adjust the relative printed size of your drawings use the File > Page Setup, General tab "Diagram scale percentage" setting. 100% is recommended to produce the crispest drawings.

Imported Text: "Text" items in master Custom Form Studio forms that print automatically (usually general information or disclaimers). Actual text is created/edited in the Custom Form Studio directly and not seen while working in the Report Writer.

Image Section: Formats separate sections of any images throughout the report set to print "below". You may adjust the image section to print differently from other comments. For instance, you may prefer to print images across the full width of the page, or you may prefer image sections line up with other comments or items. See Print a group of images side by side. Other images not set to print using "below" positioning print as part of the narrative text. 

Findings / Recommendations: If subheadings labeled specifically "Findings:" and "Recommendations:" are paired together immediately adjacent in a report, each subheading pair then prints side by side in equal columns within the overall margin settings rather than using the normal subheading formatting. Subheadings must be labeled exactly as "Findings:" and "Recommendations:" to work. Use the heading label above a Findings/Recommendations pair of subheadings to specify a particular inspection item. To print information in the Findings/Recommendations format, simply add two adjacent subheadings using those exact labels in your report. A pair of such subheadings may be most easily added while editing forms in the Custom Form Studio by using the Insert menu.

Form Reference: (Certain editions only) Text entered into the "Form Reference" lower pane automatically prints at the end of that particular form (for footnotes or auxiliary references). Each form has its own Form Reference area. See Lower Pane Functions

Form Footer: (Advanced feature) May be used to create a custom template to print at the end of each form in the report, such as to create an ending border for the entire form.

The printed "style" look of above types of items is adjusted while a report is open using File > Page Setup.  See Help topic there for more information about the various options available for each item.

Note that adjusting the "styles" for inspections does not affect your actual inspection or survey form content.  To customize form categories and comments you would instead use the separate Custom Form Studio utility, accessed from the report writer using File > Custom Form Studio.
