Using OnePager to Create Multi-Project Charts
OnePager Pro, OnePager Express, and OnePager Bundle can create multi-project charts. For complete information on creating multi-project charts, please see the articles at the link below:
|Creating Various Multi-Project Charts with OnePager (Portal)|
Updating Using the OnePager Data Tab
The OnePager Data ribbon tool bar tab’s Selected file(s) button, shown below, is useful in verifying that you have the correct source plans associated with the open chart is/are correct.
For more information on the Data tab's Selected file(s) button, please see the article at: Using the OnePager "Data" Tab's "Selected file(s)" Button
Saving a Chart (Save)
When a chart is created, opened, or updated, as with other Microsoft Windows applications, the chart can be saved in four (4) ways:
Using the Save Icon
Above the OnePager tool bar and ribbon is a Save icon shown below:
When the Save icon is clicked, OnePager automatically saves the open chart in the .TAM file you named when the chart was first created (NEW). If the chart has not yet been saved, you are prompted to create a .TAM file name for it.
Using File Tab's Save Button
A second way to save an open chart is to click the File tab as shown below:
If the .TAM was not previously saved, OnePager returns to the Chart Editor and opens the OnePager Save As form so you can create a name for the .TAM. If the .TAM was previously saved using this method, OnePager again saves the .TAM under the previously created file name.
Prompting the Save Operation By Clicking the File Tab's Close Button
A third way to cause the chart to be saved is to click the Close tab shown above which is the typical Microsoft Windows method for closing the application. If no changes were made to an open chart that was previously saved or opened from a named .TAM, the application is closed without re-saving the open .TAM. However, if changes were made to the chart during the session, a Chronicle Graphics message form is displayed giving you the option to save the chart:
Prompting the Save Operation by Clicking the X in the Upper Right-Most Corner of the Chart Editor
Finally, you can always force the saving of the chart if changes were made by clicking the red highlighted X in the upper-most right corner of the Chart Editor. Again, if no changes were made the application is close. If changes were made to the chart, the above message is displayed with the options shown.
Saving a Chart to a New .TAM File (Save As)
At some point, you want to create one or more additional charts that show the same imported data in a different way.
For example, you want to assign colors based on a different source plan data fields. Or you want to show critical path segments in one chart and not in another. Please note Saving a chart as a new .TAM file is not the same as creating a Template.
For more information on using Templates, please see the article at: Managing Templates (Portal)
Using Save As
To create a new chart name and .TAM file from an existing one, go to the OnePager ribbon, click the File button that takes you to the screen below then click the Save as… command tab on the left. This action accesses the Save As chart form as shown below:
Retrieving a Saved As File
Whenever you launch OnePager again and want to OPEN this file, it can be found by clicking the OPEN button in the OnePager Pro Start form, then clicking BROWSE FILES button and looking up the file in the Microsoft Windows Open form as shown below:
Selecting the file with a single left click and then clicking the Open button loads the file.
