Stopping LOGDRAFT from Connecting Successively Deeper Graph Markers
Problem: Report forms designed to connect
successively deeper graph markers with a solid or dotted line. This does not
provide for an accurate view of the test parameter's behavior: a better
procedure would be to not draw the line between markers which are separated by a
stratigraphy transition or by an intervening sample which was not tested.
This option is covered extensively in the Customization Guide, but is provided in the context of adding a new graph to a report. The purpose of this document is to provide instructions on modifying an existing report to selectively remove the graph marker lines.
- Open a LOGDRAFT project.
- Select "Tools" > "Data Entry Forms".
- On the bottom of the screen you will see a row of tabs: click on the "Tabulated Data" tab.
- In the top-right corner of the screen you'll find a yellow box listing the items which you can add to your table: locate and double-click on the line that starts out with the word "DISCONTINUITY".
- Select "Entry Form" > "Exit".
- Preview a boring log report on-screen.
- Select "Tools" > "Report Forms".
- Select "Sections" > "Subsurface Table".
- Locate the column where you are printing your graphs: You can find the correct column by clicking on the right-arrow button in the toolbar at the top of the screen (that's the button that looks like this: ">") until you see something like Graph of "XXXX" next to the "Items Included in Column" heading.
- In the "Items Included in Column" section of the screen, double-click on your Graph of "XXXXX" entry: this should open up a dialog box with the title "Place a Graph in the Current Column".
- Click on the "Connecting line" tab.
- Click on the "Indicate during data entry that successive markers will be connected" checkbox.
- In the field below the checkbox, type in DISCONTINUITY
- Close the dialog then select "Report" > "Exit".
