New Advanced Alignment (Nudge) Tool

The Advanced Alignment feature has a new look for DGIS v4.4.

(To access the Advanced Alignment screen go to the Shipping Papers Tab>Advanced Alignment).

The newly added fields are 'Paper Size', 'Header Font Size', 'Details Font Size', 'Footer Font Size', 'Nudge Unit of Measure', 'Right Nudge', and 'Bottom Nudge'.

The 'Top Margin field' has been renamed 'Top Nudge' and the 'Left Margin' is now called 'Left Nudge'.

The most significant change to the Advanced Alignment (Nudge) Tool is that there is no longer a form layout with the respective shipping form's fields.

Our Development team has designed it so that users should no longer have to move individual fields around so that the text that's entered is properly aligned to the form.

The process for Creating, Saving, Editing and Deleting an Advanced Alignment as well as the process for how to apply the newly created Advanced Alignment to your form hasn't changed. 

Please keep in mind that it may take several attempts before you're able to find just the right alignment for your form as this process is trial and error.  We recommend you set aside your time accordingly.  

Creating  an Alignment

First select the form type you need to change the alignment for. Each form type has different fields and will print differently, therefore each form that is misaligned will need an Advanced Alignment setting. To do this, use the drop down list under Form Type to select the appropriate form type.

Give the setting a name under Setting Name.

Click Save.

Reminder: At the Print>Shipments screen, make sure the Selected Alignment field displays the setting name you created and then you'll want to click the Regenerate Reports button

Edit an Existing Alignment

To make changes to an existing alignment setting, follow these steps:

  1. In the Advanced Alignment tool, select the form type of the alignment you need to change.
  2. Under the Saved Settings drop-down menu, select the Setting you need to change.
  3. Make any necessary changes.
  4. Select Save in the top right hand corner.

Reminder:  At the Print>Shipments screen, make sure the Selected Alignment field displays the setting name you created and then you'll want to click the Regenerate Reports button

Deleting an Existing Alignment.

To delete an existing alignment, follow these steps:

  1. In the Advanced Alignment tool, select the form type of the alignment you need to change.
  2. Under the Saved Settings drop-down menu, select the Setting you need to change.
  3. Click Delete in the top right hand corner.
  4. Click Yes.

 

NOTE:   Advanced Alignment settings created under DGIS v4.3 are no longer accessible in DGIS v4.4.
