Graphic Template

This page appears when you click the Graphic Template radio button on top of the List Format tab page.


With a Graphic Template, you can either select a predefined list template from your Library, or use an embedded template layout (or a copy of it).

List layout templates offer sophisticated ready-to-present report formats incorporating both text and graphic elements.

Reports formatted using templates appear in a non-editable project windows. The contents of the windows can be copied to the other project window, including the floor plan views, or saved in ARCHICAD Project, RTF and PlotMaker layout format.

Click the Choose Template button to browse the library for list templates. Select the desired template file in the Open dialog box. Default templates can be found in the List Templates folder of the ARCHICAD Library.

If you use independent templates, ARCHICAD refers to the actual template file for the settings. If you check the Include in List Scheme checkbox, the template file will be archived in the listset.txt file (see above). When the box is checked, the template name appears in italic.

Data Order and Parameter Options

See the Text List section above on how to rearrange the order of data columns and customize columns headers.

If the list of parameters includes Components or Descriptors, use the checkboxes to define additional list items.

Note: Changing data order can result in inconsistent list content if the template contains fixed column headers.

Parameter Listing

Element List template files can include instructions to list element parameters separately and/or add up parameter values in the report. Define your preference for each parameter using the appropriate checkbox:


List on separate level: List parameter types for each element

Use for Grouping/Total: add up parameter values in the report
