All of the options on this dialog are explored below :

Number of lines for a page
Add totals to the end of the bill
Each column may be activated or deactivated
Column name - this is the descriptive name of the column
Column width - this may be edited as required
User column - these are the headings as they appear on the bill
These columns will determine the sorting of the parts on the bill.
This table is slightly more complicated, because every row no longer works independently. This table has a tree structure.
One complete tree is one sub total line. A tree is added for every sub total that has been clicked on in the column sorting.
Every tree has a variety of settings.
Separation: This describes the final appearance of the division between the normal elements of the part list and the sub total. All possible combinations can be selected by checking or UnChecking the boxes. The sequence can also be edited using the arrows (e.g.: first a line and then a new page).
Subtotal row: The columns where a subtotal is to be made. If an extra column is placed in the subtotals, but is not on, the description will be used.
This can be used to determine from which elements the part list will be created. This can be useful to generate a separate order list for steel and concrete for example.
The filter system works in accordance with a list of rules. The rules are in an AND relation, this means that all rules have to apply to an element before it will be included in the part list. If no rules have been created then all elements will be applied to the part list.
To create or delete a new rule, click on the right-hand button. The field 'Editing rule' allows the rule to be edited. Click on the rule in the list and this will allow the rule to be edited. When the rule is edited, the change is displayed immediately.
By way of example the rule for a part list containing only steel elements:
If the property Position Quality starts with SS
In another part list, but then for concrete the following rule would be used:.
If the property Position Quality starts with concrete
