Why does the Report pane sometimes show areas that seem to have missing data?
The labels defined for the Report in most modules are fixed, regardless of the specific input or results values in a particular analysis. If some data are not needed, or some results not applicable, the labels provided for those values still appear in the Report. Flexibility to only show labels for which there are values is planned in a future release.
Why can’t I print only selected text in the Report pane?
This capability is planned in a future release. For now, you can mark a portion of the text in the Report pane, then right-click to copy it to the Windows clipboard or save to a file for pasting or loading into WordPad or your word processor for printing.
When printing a report, why do the page breaks occur at the wrong places?
Flexible page setup attributes are planned in a future release. For now, you can mark a portion of the text in the Report pane, then right-click to copy it to the Windows clipboard or save to a file for pasting or loading into WordPad or your word processor for printing with your selected margins and page breaks.
Why am I unable to print from the Transit, Pedestrians and Two-Lane modules?
These modules are currently running in MS-DOS mode and the printer must be configured to print from MS-DOS. On Windows NT this may have to be done by the administrator. Windows 95/98 users may configure a printer to print from MS-DOS by modifying the printer’s properties (Start Menu/Settings/Printers/Properties/Details) to print to a specific port. Consult the Windows documentation for additional details.
When I copy-and-paste into my word processing software from the Report pane, why does some of the formatting get lost?
The Report pane is using a “fixed” font with each character occupying exactly the same amount of space. When pasting into a word processor, be sure the font selected is also a “fixed” font (such as Courier) and not a “proportional” one (such as Times New Roman).
Why is there an asterisk (*), plus sign (+) or minus sign (-) appended to certain values (sometimes but not always) in the output pane and printed in the report?
If a calculated number is edited, an asterisk (*) will be shown by that field and an asterisk will appear in all results to indicate that an intermediate value was adjusted.
Result thresholds at decision points, such as density or delay, will have a plus (+) or minus (-) appended if the calculated value at full precision is greater (+) or less (-) than the rounded displayed value. The asterisk (*), plus (+), and minus (-) flags will appear when applicable in the report pane and in the printed reports.
