The Miscellaneous Tab

This tab contains various settings for preparing documents. These settings can only be stored in the open document, or in the chosen configuration profile, i.e. maintained as settings for any uploaded document.

- Bookmark Marking - the box from which you choose to print a cell at the edge of each bookmark in the document. The code used for the braille cell can be customized from the next field "Code";

- Print real pages: This is where you choose how to print the real page elements in your document. You can choose not to print the actual pages, leaving them to be printed only in the headers and footers (if you use the appropriate variable); you can choose whether to print the actual pages in a simple mode, that is as if they were normal text elements; or you can choose whether to print them at the end of the line, a special mode that aligns the actual page at the end of the line, filling the space with a dash. The latter mode is particularly suitable for printing school books, to have additional reading facilities. The last two modes use the next field containing the translation mask of the actual pages, from which you can customize how to print them. The mask accepts only one variable, that of real pages: %RP (in decimal numbers) &RP (in Roman numerals);

- Philological indications: As in the previous box, you can choose how and whether to print the philological indications from this box. In the next mask field you can customize the translation mask. The mask accepts only one variable: %PH (single variable);

- Fill Page - this box allows you to choose how and whether to fill pages with many blank lines. There are different filling styles:

a. Simple fills the page using always in the same way the input braille string, for all filling lines (ABCABC / ABCABC / ABCABC);

b. Rotated it uses the input braille string by rotating the cells as the line advances (ABCABC / BCABCA / CABCAB);

c. Alternate uses the string braille input one cell per line (YYYY / BBBBBB / CCCCCCC);

- Codes: This is the box from which the filling braille string is customised. A multiple-cell braille string can be entered;

- Minimum limit: box from which you choose how many Braille lines at least the page must have to use to fill;

- Text Spacing: The box from which you choose the empty lines to leave between the page text and the fill.
