Report designer variables

Post by Storker » Thu Oct 01, 2015 13:19

In the Report Designer, I can only choose 5 picture variables (LogPicture1 to LogPicture5). Is there a way to add more of my trip pictures to the report design? I'd love to be able to include 6-10 picture thumbnails in my printed report.

Hi

Unfortunately you can't do that yourself, this is something that would have to be implemented in the Diving Log code.

Kind regards,
Sven

OK. Ant plans of implementing more than five pictures? One of the great advantages of an electronic log is the ability to include pictures in the log.

Also, is there an option to have a log entry stretch across two pages in the report designer? Like, one for the data and description, and one for the pictures?

How many pictures would you need? There has to be a fix limit for all users and all dives (it can't be depending on the number of pictures per dive).

To print on two pages, set the "Pagebreak before" option to "True" for the first picture object:
