Applied Parameters: None
This command is used to generate a report from the active library document, containing information about the components stored within that library. The report can be configured to include component previews (drawn in color or left black and white). The report can be generated as a Microsoft Word document (*.doc), or as a standard HTML document (*.html).
This command is accessed from the PCB Library Editor by choosing the Reports » Library Report command, from the main menus.
After launching the command, the Library Report Settings dialog will appear. Use this dialog to configure the content and style of the report, and also where (and by what name) the report is to be generated. By default, the report will be named after the PCB library, and stored in the same location. After clicking OK the report will be generated. If you have opted to have the report opened after generation, this will happen provided you have either Microsoft Word (if generating a Doc style report), or Microsoft Internet Explorer (if generating a HTML style report) installed on your computer.
- If you have chosen to add the generated report to the project after generation, it will appear in the Projects panel under the Generated\Documents sub-folder (for a HTML style report), or the Generated\Text Documents sub-folder (for a Doc style report).
