The Variant Report dialog
The Variant Report dialog


The Variant Report dialog allows you to configure and generate a detailed HTML-formatted report of the defined project variants.


The Variant Report dialog is accessed by clicking the Detailed Report button at the bottom of the Variant Management dialog.


  • Report Only Varied Components - use this option to determine the exact information featured in the report:
    • Full Non-Varied Information (option disabled) - all components are listed, showing their inclusion state in each enabled variant. For each component, all parameters and their values are listed.
    • Full Varied Information (option enabled) - only those components that vary in some way between enabled variants are listed, showing their inclusion state in each variant. For each component, only those parameters that vary in some way between variants are listed, along with their values.
  • Project Variants - this region lists the original base design (<Original Base>) and all defined variants. The generated report could compare one specific variant against the base design, compare one variant against another, or compare all variants against the base design. By default, all defined variants, as well as the original base design, will be enabled for inclusion into the report. Use the associated checkbox to include/exclude entities as required.
  • Run - click this button to generate the report. The report will be created and opened as the active document within the main design window.
