The following article has been updated for OpenCities Map CONNECT Edition and discusses the Print Preparation configuration.
MS_GEOPRINTPREP_DGNLIBLIST - Print template libraries can be created by copying one of the sample DGNLibs located by the variable MS_GEOPRINTPREP_DGNLIBLIST. This variable defines the directory paths used to locate the Print Preparation DGNLib files. The variable MS_GEOPRINTPREP_DGNLIBLIST can also be defined in Macros node of the OpenCities Geospatial Administrator. The DGNLibs to copy to the workspace upon export can be defined the Files node.
By default, this variable points to:
And contains the following files:
- Samples_ANSI.dgnlib, Samples_Arch.dgnlib, Samples_ISO.dgnlib which contain borders for commonly used sheet sizes.
- My_Print_Templates.dgnlib which contains the necessary element templates to customize new print templates.
You can update the print template models in these libraries with your own borders, title blocks and logos, or create your own DGNLib:
The templates found in the configured DGNLibs will be presented in the Print Model ribbon group:
MS_GEOPRINTPREP_SHEETSIZESDGNLIB - When setting up a print template, the configuration variable MS_GEOPRINTPREP_SHEETSIZESDGNLIB defines the name and location of the DGNLib file used for providing the list of available borders. The default file is SheetSizes.dgnlib and is located in the following installation folder MS_GEOPRINTPREP_DEFAULTS which points to .../PrintPreparation/defaults/. To provide your own list of standard borders, define this variable to point to your DGNLib.
MS_GEOPRINTPREP_ARROW - The Add North Arrow tool places a north arrow on the sheet. The default north arrow is located in the delivered $(MS_GEOPRINTPREP_DEFAULTS)PrintPreparation.dgnlib. If you prefer to use your own north arrow, set MS_GEOPRINTPREP_ARROW to your cell name. Note that the cell must be found in one of the cell libraries pointed to by MS_CELLLIST.
