Report printing

 
Simple reports can be directly printed from the VibroMatrix modules. Each module with report function includes a sample report. It can be used as a basis for your customized report templates.
 

Printing without printer

 
If no printer is at hand you can use PDF printers to save your reports.
 

Using templates

 
Report templates are shown in a tree structure of printable elements. Each of these elements has properties like its position on the page. Three types of report elements are selectable:
