The Sections Tab, as illustrated below, provides key elements that are essential for processing a job.

 

Illustration Process & Print/Publish Sections Tab

 

Below each of the elements are broken down by its distinct function(s).

 

Illustration of Sections Tab - Select Sections OptionsThe All Sections option will be chosen by default, and will include every Section contained in the Job. Clicking the Some Sections button will allow you to select only the Sections you want from the text box by clicking to select them. Highlighting a Division will automatically select all the Sections within that Division.

 

 

Illustration of Sections Tab - Printing and Renumbering OptionsBy default both options are selected.  The option to Print/Process Sections will generate the processed Sections for printing or viewing.  The option to Renumber Paragraphs will renumber the content based on the editing that has been performed.

 

 

Icon Indicating Important Information to NoteThe renumbering occurs only in the printed and processed (.prn) files, not in the Section (.sec) files.  The .sec files retain the original numbering of the Sections. The paragraphs referenced in the reports will also reflect the renumbered paragraphs. (While editing, <SPT> tags renumber immediately, but the numbers within the <TTL> tags do not.)

 

Illustration of Sections Tab - Reconcile OptionsBy default  Address, Reference and Submittal reconciliations are selected.  These functions provide an automated system by which you can verify References, Organization names, and Submittals used in the Sections of your Job and remove those not used. Just as with renumbering, these changes are saved to the print and processed files, not the .sec Section files, which are left intact.



Icon Indicating Important Information to NoteIf the selection for Addresses and References and/or Submittals are unavailable then the Sources for Reference Publications or the Submittal Procedure Sections were not included in the Job.

 

Illustration of Process & Print ButtonApplies the choices made on the tabbed screens and sends a copy to the selected printer.

 

Illustration of Process Only buttonApplies the choices made on the tabbed screens and sends the results to the Processed Files folder under the Job in the SI Explorer.

Illustration of Save Settings ButtonSaves the choices made on the tabbed screens (except for Sections selected to be processed/printed) so that the next time the box is opened, the selections you saved will be your new defaults.

Icon indicating Helpful HintIf you want to save some but not all the settings, make the ones you want to save first, use the Save Setting button, and then make the additional selections that you don't want to save. Example: You want to make permanent changes to the Headers and Footers, but you will want to select different reports the next time you process Sections. You would make the changes on the Header/Footer tab first, click the Save Settings button, then choose the Reports you want to run.)
