Using Survey Folder Maintenance : Working with a Continuous Survey Folder : 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 in Survey Folder Maintenance, follow these steps:
Select one or more pipeline segments in the Select ROWs window. Click Save to close the window (Figure 6-3).
Click Modules > Indirect Survey Manager (ISM) to open the ISM module.
Click Data Entry > Survey Folder Maintenance to open the Survey Folder Maintenance window.
Note: Clicking the Selected ROWs bar collapses the Selected ROWs panel allowing you to view more of the grid. Clicking the Selected ROWs bar again expands the Selected ROWs panel.
Click a button labeled with the type of continuous survey that you want to add a layout theme. For example, click the CIS button to add a layout theme for a continuous survey associated with close interval survey readings (Figure 6-8).
Click the Customize tab then the Add button to open the New Layout Theme dialog box (Figure 6-11).

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 6-12).

Complete the following steps in the Layouts page to add and remove fields in the new layout theme as needed:
Note: Fields with a lock icon are required and cannot be removed from the theme, such as ROW Code and Pipe shown in the previous example (Figure 6-12).
Click Save to save changes.
To apply the new layout theme to the data entry grid in Survey Folder Maintenance, follow these steps:
Click the Options tab to open the options page (Figure 6-13).
Click the down arrow in the field Select Layout Theme and select the new layout theme in the selection list.
Choose a method for sorting survey folders in the data entry grid based on the survey date in the Start Date field. Click Oldest First or Newest First in Sort Dates to sort survey folders with the oldest or newest survey Start Date first.
Click Apply to save and apply changes. If you want to cancel changes instead, click Cancel. PCS Axis closes the options page and returns to the Survey Folder Maintenance window.
