Working with Pipeline Records : Working with Themes and Filter Groups : Adding a Layout Theme

Adding a Layout Theme
A layout theme is a group of fields in a grid layout. Adding a new Layouts theme allows you to choose which fields you want to include in the grid layout and then save the layout as a theme for later use.
To add a layout theme for the Information or Maintenance grid, follow these steps:
Select one or more pipeline segments in the Select ROWs window. Click Save to close the window (Figure 4-31).
Figure 4-31. Select ROWs
Click Data Entry > Edit ROW Detail to open the Edit ROW Detail window. If you want to collapse the Selected ROWs panel to view more of the Edit ROW Detail grid, click Selected ROWs. To expand the panel, click Selected ROWs again (Figure 4-32).
To add a layout theme for the Information grid, click the Information tab if the grid is not visible. Click the Maintenance tab to display the Maintenance grid if you want to create a layout theme for this grid.

Click the Customize tab then Add to open the New Layout Theme dialog box. The following figure shows an example when adding a layout for the Information grid (Figure 4-33).

Type a name for the layout theme in the field Enter Theme Name. If you want to create a public theme, click the Public check box to place a check mark inside the check box. When the check box is empty, the layout saves as a private theme.
Note: Themes are either public or private. A public theme is available for use by all PCS Axis users. A private theme is available only to the user who creates it.
Select a layout theme with fields you want to copy to the new layout theme. Click the Copy Content check box and then click the down arrow in Copy Fields From Theme and select a theme in the selection list.
Click OK to save changes and return to the Layouts page (Figure 4-34).

Click Save to save changes.
Click the Options tab to open the options page (Figure 4-35).
Click the down arrow in the field Select Layout Theme and select the new layout theme in the selection list.
Click Apply to save and apply changes and then return to the grid. To cancel changes, click the Options tab or Cancel to return to the grid.
