Tip #249: Modifying a Report’s Print View from the Curves Tab
In this week’s tip, we will answer an Empower CDS user question.
Q: If I go to the Curves tab in the project window and right click ‘print’, how do I modify what is printed?
Great question. I will show you how it is done.
Let’s get started.
Right click on a calibration curve in the Curves tab and select ‘Print’, Empower will generate a report similar to what is in figure 1 (figure 1).
To modify what gets printed when printing in this way, right click on the calibration curve and select ‘Print/Preview’. When the dialogue opens, select the third choice which is ‘Use a report that was generated to be appropriate for the selected data’. Click ‘OK’ (figure 2).
Close Preview and in the Report Publisher window, select ‘Edit’ > ‘Manage Defaults’ (figure 3).
Select ‘Default Calcurve’ from the list on the left (figure 4).
Click ‘Load Method’. Click ‘Finished’ (figure 5).
Make the changes, go back to ‘Edit’ > ‘Manage Defaults’ and click ‘Save Method’. Click ‘Finished’ (figure 6).
Now, if you right click on a calibration curve in the Curves tab and select Print, the report will be modified. In this example, I removed Sample Name (figure 7).
It’s that easy!
Final Note: This can be done with either the Pro or QuickStart interface.
