TitlePages

TitlePages is a Multiple Document Interface (MDI) word processor incorporated into planEASe to enable you to process and print documents that use the same Page Setup as your planEASe Reports and Graphs. Thus you may produce planEASe documents, reports and graphs bearing consecutive page numbers with the same appearance so that the entire presentation package appears to have been produced by the same software (as indeed it has).



TitlePages

Formatting
TitlePages is capable of bold, italic, and underlined text. These effects are implemented by pressing the B, I, and U buttons in the toolbar, or pressing Control-B, Control-T or Control-U while typing. If a section of text is highlighted (selected) when you do this, the selected effect is applied to the text. You may use superscripts or subscripts by selecting the text, pulling down Format/Character, and selecting the appropriate treatment and font size. You may also select different fonts either by selecting text and choosing the font from the font list in the toolbar, or by choosing the font without selecting text, which uses the selected font for all following text (until you choose another font). You may also select text color by selecting the text and pulling down Format/Text color.

An unique aspect of this word processor is that Page Setup (margins, base font, back color, and font color) is controlled by your Page Setup settings in planEASe....that is, your printed page appearance is the same as all other planEASe reports and graphs you print with this Page Setup. If you have chosen to number your pages and /or use the other page footer options, your printed pages will use your settings (and page numbers) when you print. While the page presentation on screen recognizes the Page Setup margins, etc., it is not feasible to show the top title box, text surround box, and footer information on screen, although they are, of course, added to the printed page.

Communicating
TitlePages can open and save files in four formats:


The default is the planEASe *.txp format which has the advantage of retaining the Title and Subtitle text for the Title Box at the planEASe page top, but *.rtf files can be read (and written) by other word processors such as Microsoft Word and WordPerfect. HTML files are used by web sites, so you can use this format to publish to your website (or read/edit other's website pages) Text files (*.txt) will not retain your formatting (bold / italic / underline, etc) information, but, in general, the other filetypes will. You may, of course, import and export to other word processor and editors by using the Windows Clipboard. You may cut/copy selected text to the Clipboard by using Edit/Cut (Ctrl-X) or Edit/Copy (Ctrl-C). Pasting anything on the Clipboard into TitlePages is simply Edit/Paste (Ctrl-V).

MDI Interface
Due to its MDI capability, TitlePages can open more than one document at a time. The open documents are listed in the Window menu, which is where you may arrange and/or switch between the open documents. To close a single document, access File/Close or click the button at the top right of the document window.

When TitlePages is opened (by requesting Reports/TitlePages at the Assumptions Edit Screen), the first document (the TitlePages for the current Assumption Set) is automatically opened for your editing. You may then, if you wish, open additional documents by pulling down File/Open. When you are finished with a document you should pull down File/Close. Pulling down File/Exit or pressing the Exit button located at the screen bottom right or pressing the ESCape key when in any document will close all documents (including the current TitlePages) and return to the Assumption Edit Screen, just like all other report functions in planEASe.

TitlePages

Graphics/Images

You may insert graphics in TitlePages from a file in either of two ways. The button here has been inserted at the cursor by pulling down Insert/Image/At Caret Position and specifying the file. When a graphic has been placed At Caret Position, it is treated as a character in the text stream, and cannot be sized. TitlePages reads TIFF (*.tif), Bitmap (*.bmp), Graphics Image Format (*.gif) and Windows Metafile (*.wmf) graphics.

The second way to insert a graphic from a file is Insert/Image/As Fixed Object. Graphics inserted this way first appear at the top left of your screen, and you may drag them to the desired located by clicking on the graphic (a dotted line frame appears), depressing the alt key and dragging it with the mouse. Selecting the graphic, depressing alt, and placing your mouse pointer at a corner or mid-border allows you to size the graphic.

Graphics may be pasted into your document from the Clipboard by pulling down Edit/Paste or pressing Control-V to place it into your document as described in the previous paragraph.

TitlePages

Tables
TitlePages has very rudimentary table capability. For instance, columns may not be added, deleted or sized. For this reason, we suggest you format any required tables in another word processor such as Microsoft Word or WordPerfect, put the formatted table on the Clipboard, and paste it into your TitlePages document using Edit/Paste.
