==Overview==
 
 
When OnePager charts consist of many '''rows''' with task bars/milestone symbols closely spaced within the '''rows''', it may be difficult for your audience to focus on a particular '''row''' and its task bars without confusing the intended focus with nearby '''rows''' and task bars.  This can be remedied manually by '''adding blank/empty rows''' to vertically space task bars from another.  This solution does lead to increasing the '''vertical height of the document''' and may further hinder the focus necessary to achieve the chart’s goals and objectives.
 
 
OnePager provides an alternative means for visually achieving '''vertical separation between rows '''and''' swimlanes – zebra striping'''.  '''Zebra striping''' OnePager charts can be done between '''rows '''or at any one of the '''three swimlane levels''' '''defined '''and''' shown''' in the chart.  Here are an example of a chart with '''row zebra striping''':
 
 
<center>[[File:P70-12_24_1-(1)-08182020.png]]</center>
 
<!--<center>P70-12_24_1-(1)-08182020.png</center>-->
 
 
With '''row zebra striping''', both the '''defined''' and '''shown text column cells '''in the '''rows''' and the''' row''' portion in the '''graph area''' are '''zebra striped'''.  To avoid hindering the visibility of the task bars/milestone symbols in the '''row''' and any associated '''decorations''' such as '''baselines''', '''deadlines''', and '''endpoints''', the '''row zebra striping''' is '''ordered''' behind the task bars/milestone symbols and their '''decorations'''.
 
 
Using the '''Left#2 swimlane level defined '''and''' shown''' in the above illustration, we can '''zebra stripe''' the '''Left#2 swimlane level''' as shown here:
 
 
<center>[[File:P70-12_24_1-(2)-08182020.png]]</center>
 
<!--<center>P70-12_24_1-(2)-08142020.png</center>-->
 
 
The decision to use or not use either '''row '''or '''swimlane zebra striping''' should be determined by your goals and objectives for the schedule discussion presentation being prepare and that of the audience as well.  The controls for '''row zebra striping '''and''' swimlane level zebra striping''' are located in the '''Template Properties''' and '''Chart Properties''' form’s '''Main''' tab’s '''Color''' control group’s '''Chart Background''' sub-control group as shown here for the '''Chart Properties''' form:
 
 
<center>[[File:P70-12_24_1-(3)-08182020.png]]</center>
 
<!--<center>P70-12_24_1-(3)-08142020.png</center>-->
 
 
Within the '''Chart Background''' sub-control group are three controls, two for accessing the standard OnePager '''Color Chooser''' form for establishing the alternating '''colors''' for the '''zebra striping''' and the '''Chart fill pattern''': dropdown list for selecting the options available for setting the chart’s '''Background color '''or''' colors'''.  The '''Color 1''' and '''Color 2''' dropdowns for accessing the standard OnePager '''Color Chooser''' forms provide the controls for selecting the '''colors''' that '''alternate between rows '''or '''swimlanes''' in the chart.
 
 
The '''Chart fill pattern:''' dropdown list is shown below:
 
 
<center>[[File:P70-12_24_1-(4)-08182020.png]]</center>
 
<!--<center>P70-12_24_1-(4)-08142020.png</center>-->
 
 
In the illustration above, the '''Chart fill pattern:''' dropdown list includes '''Row stripes''' and '''the three levels of swimlane level stripes'''.  The list is modified based on the number of '''swimlane levels''' to include only those '''swimlane levels''' that are '''defined''' for the chart.  '''Swimlane levels''' are '''defined''' in the '''Rows/Swimlanes''' tab. 
 
 
There are five additional '''Chart fill patterns''' available in the dropdown list: '''Solid''',''' Top to bottom''',''' Bottom to top''',''' Left to right''',''' and Right to left'''. 
 
 
These '''five Chart fill patterns''' are covered in the section below at this link: [[Zebra Striping for Rows and Swimlanes for OnePager Pro for Version 7.0#Using Other Color Chart Fill Patterns in OnePager Pro Charts | Using Other Color Chart Fill Patterns in OnePager Pro Charts]] <!--12.24.1-70-->

As an example, if only the '''Left#1 '''and '''Left#3 swimlane levels''' are '''defined''' and '''shown''' in the chart, the list only includes the '''Left#1 '''and '''Left#3 swimlane stripes''' entries along with '''Row stripes''' entry and the other entries shown above the '''Row stripes''' entry as shown here:

This article describes the controls for '''creating '''and''' editing zebra striping''' in the chart for '''rows''' and '''swimlane levels'''.  In addition, this article provides information on the '''control''' and '''management of output media''' where the chart contains '''row''' and/or '''swimlane zebra stripes'''.
 
 
==Creating and Editing Row Zebra Stripes in a OnePager Pro Chart==
 
 
When a OnePager chart is configured with '''row zebra stripes''' it typically looks like this:
 
 
<center>[[File:P70-12_24_1-(1)-08182020.png]]</center>
 
<!--<center>P70-12_24_1-(1)-08182020.png</center>-->
 
 
As a convention, the '''row zebra striping''' includes the '''unhidden rows''' and any '''text column cells defined''' and '''shown''' in the chart as shown in the illustration above.
 
 
===Creating Row Zebra Stripes===
 
 
To create simple '''row zebra stripes''', access the '''Chart Properties''' form by clicking the '''Chart Properties''' button on the OnePager '''Home''' ribbon tool bar as shown in the illustration  below and navigate to the '''Main''' tab and the '''Chart Background''' sub-control group:
 
 
<center>[[File:P70-12_24_1-(6)-08192020.png]]</center>
 
<!--<center>P70-12_24_1-(6)-08192020.png</center>-->
 
 
For this example, the starting conditions have both the '''Color 1''' and the '''Color 2 '''settings set to '''No fill''' and the '''Chart fill pattern:''' is set to '''Solid''' so that '''no colors or shading''' are shown in the chart’s''' graph area''' in the illustration above.  Next, go to the '''Chart fill pattern:''' dropdown list and select the '''Row stipes''' option.  Then, click the '''Color 1''' dropdown to access the standard OnePager '''Color Chooser''' form and select a '''color'''.    Do the same for the '''Color 2''' dropdown to access the '''Color Chooser''' form again and select a '''color'''.
 
 
In the illustration below '''Color 1''' is set to a '''light shade of red''' and '''Color 2''' is set of a '''light shade of blue''' as shown below before '''applying''' the changes to the chart:
 
 
<center>[[File:P70-12_24_1-(7)-08192020.png]]</center>
 
<!--<center>P70-12_24_1-(7)-08192020.png</center>-->
 
 
When you click the '''Apply''' or '''OK''' button in the '''Chart Properties''' form, the chart is reconfigured to look like this:
 
 
<center>[[File:P70-12_24_1-(8)-08192020.png]]</center>
 
<!--<center>P70-12_24_1-(8)-08192020.png</center>-->
 
 
To clarify how OnePager applies the '''row zebra striping''', OnePager uses the '''Color 2 color''' starting on the bottom most '''row''' and alternates to '''Color 1''' on the next '''row''' up and so on until the top '''row''' is reached.  To illustrate this, if we return to the '''Chart Properties''' form’s '''Main''' tab and reverse the '''colors''' selected for '''Color 1 '''and''' Color 2''', the new reconfigured chart looks like this:
 
 
<center>[[File:P70-12_24_1-(9)-08192020.png]]</center>
 
<!--<center>P70-12_24_1-(9)-08192020.png</center>-->
 
 
===Editing Rows with Zebra Stripes===
 
 
'''Rows '''and''' text column cells''' can be '''edited''' regardless of whether '''rows''' are '''zebra striped''' or not.
 
 
For more information on '''editing row properties''', please see the article at: [[Editing Row Properties for Version 7.0 | Editing Row Properties]] <!--12.22.1-70-->
 
 
====Adding a Row====
 
 
If you '''add '''a '''blank/empty row''' to the chart, OnePager maintains the '''row zebra striping''' as specified in the '''Chart Properties''' form by including the '''added row''' as part of the scheme, assuming '''no maverick row colors''' are contained in the chart.  As an example, the chart below has a '''blank/empty row added''' below the '''Engineering Team 2 Development''' task bar and applied to the chart configuration just above:
 
 
<center>[[File:P70-12_24_1-(10)-08192020.png]]</center>
 
<!--<center>P70-12_24_1-(10)-08192020.png</center>-->
 
 
In the chart illustrated above, OnePager maintains the arrangement of '''alternating color row zebra stripes''' starting with '''Color 2''' at the bottom most '''row''' and working upward '''alternating colors''' between '''Color 2 '''and '''Color 1''' until the top most '''row''' is '''zebra striped'''.
 
 
====Hiding a Row====
 
 
If we return to the original chart, and '''hide '''the''' row''' with the '''Engineering Team 2 Development''' task bar, OnePager again maintains the same '''alternating color '''scheme from the bottom most '''row''' to the top most '''row''' in the chart as shown here after the designated '''row''' is '''hidden''':
 
 
<center>[[File:P70-12_24_1-(11)-08192020.png]]</center>
 
<!--<center>P70-12_24_1-(11)-08192020.png</center>-->
 
 
1The above chart maintains the '''row zebra striping''' scheme after the '''row '''is''' hidden'''.
 
 
====Hiding a Swimlane====
 
 
In a similar way, '''hiding a swimlane level cell''' containing '''multiple rows''' is just an extension of the above example.  In the chart below the '''Integration & Testing Left#2 swimlane level cell''' and its four '''member rows '''are''' hidden'''.  After the '''swimlane level cell''' and its '''rows''' are '''hidden''', the reconfigured chart looks like this when compared to the chart’s starting configuration:
 
 
<center>[[File:P70-12_24_1-(12)-08192020.png]]</center>
 
<!--<center>P70-12_24_1-(12)-08192020.png</center>-->
 
 
====Other Row Edits====
 
 
OnePager attempts to maintain the specified '''row zebra striping''' scheme when '''other row edits''' are applied in the '''Chart Editor''' such as (1) '''Adding a swimlane''', (2) '''Splitting swimlanes''', (3) '''Grouping rows into swimlanes''', (4) '''Adding a row to a swimlane''', (5) '''Making each row into a swimlane''', and (6) '''Merging swimlanes'''.
 
 
For more information on the '''row edits mentioned above''', please see the articles at links given below:

====Mavericking A Row Background Color====
 
 
Returning to the starting configuration of the chart with '''row zebra stripes''', if we '''maverick a row’s Background color''', that '''mavericked Background color''' is retained no matter how the '''rows''' in the chart may be manipulated as described in the previous examples.
 
 
To show this, suppose we '''maverick the Background color''' of the '''row''' with the '''Engineering Team 2 Development''' task bar such that the '''new Background color''' for the '''row''' and its associated '''text column cells''' are '''yellow''' as shown here:
 
 
<center>[[File:P70-12_24_1-(13)-08192020.png]]</center>
 
<!--<center>P70-12_24_1-(13)-08192020.png</center>-->
 
 
To complete the example, if we now '''add a blank/empty row below''' the '''row''' containing the '''Internal Performance Validation''' task bar, the chart is reconfigured to look like this:
 
 
<center>[[File:P70-12_24_1-(14)-08192020.png]]</center>
 
<!--<center>P70-12_24_1-(14)-08192020.png</center>-->
 
 
While the '''row zebra striping''' scheme may cause a change around the '''row''' with the '''maverick Background color''', the '''row zebra striping''' scheme is maintained for the chart.  Moving '''rows up and down''' in the chart using the '''row drag and drop method''' does not alter the '''overall row zebra striping''' scheme.
 
 
For more information on '''moving rows up and down in the chart''', please see the article at: [[Moving Rows for Version 7.0 | Moving Rows]] <!--12.9.1-70-->
 
 
==Creating and Editing Swimlane Level Zebra Stripes in a OnePager Pro Chart==
 
 
When our example OnePager chart is configured with '''Left#2 swimlane level zebra stripes''' it looks like this:
 
 
<center>[[File:P70-12_24_1-(15)-08202020.png]]</center>
 
<!--<center>P70-12_24_1-(15)-08202020.png</center>-->
 
 
In the chart illustrated above, we’ve '''hidden the top '''and''' bottom row borders''' leaving the '''top and bottom swimlane borders unhidden''' at all '''swimlane levels''' to better focus on the '''Left#2 swimlane level zebra striping '''scheme.  As a convention, the '''swimlane level zebra stripes''' includes the '''unhidden swimlanes''' and any '''swimlane level cells defined''' and '''shown''' in the chart as shown in the illustration above.
 
 
===Creating Swimlane Level Zebra Stripes===
 
 
To create simple '''swimlane level zebra stripes''', open the '''Chart Properties''' form by clicking the '''Chart Properties''' button on the OnePager '''Home''' ribbon tool bar as shown in the illustration  below and navigate to the '''Main''' tab and the '''Chart Background''' sub-control group:
 
 
<center>[[File:P70-12_24_1-(6)-08192020.png]]</center>
 
<!--<center>P70-12_24_1-(6)-08192020.png</center>-->
 
 
For this example, the starting conditions have both the '''Color 1''' and the '''Color 2 '''settings set to '''No fill''' and the '''Chart fill pattern:''' is set to '''Solid''' so that '''no colors or shading''' are shown in '''the graph area''' of the chart in the illustration above.  Next, go to the '''Chart fill pattern:''' dropdown list and select the '''Left#2 swimlane stipes''' option. Then, click the '''Color 1''' dropdown to access the standard OnePager '''Color Chooser''' form and select a '''color'''.    Do the same for the '''Color 2''' dropdown to access the '''Color Chooser''' form again and select a '''color'''.
 
 
In the illustration below '''Color 1''' is set to a '''light shade of red''' and '''Color 2''' is set of a '''light shade of blue''' as shown below before '''applying''' the changes to the chart:
 
 
<center>[[File:P70-12_24_1-(16)-08202020.png]]</center>
 
<!--<center>P70-12_24_1-(16)-08202020.png</center>-->
 
 
When you click the '''Apply''' or '''OK''' button in the '''Chart Properties''' form, the chart is reconfigured to look like this:
 
 
<center>[[File:P70-12_24_1-(17)-08202020.png]]</center>
 
<!--<center>P70-12_24_1-(17)-08202020.png</center>-->
 
 
In the above illustration, the '''Left#2 swimlane level '''is involved in the '''swimlane level zebra striping''' scheme.  To enhance the above illustration further, only the '''top and bottom Left#2 swimlane level borders''' are '''showing''' and all other '''swimlane level '''and''' row top '''and''' bottom borders''' are '''hidden'''.  To clarify how OnePager applies the '''swimlane level zebra striping''', OnePager uses the '''Color 2 color''' starting at the bottom most '''swimlane''' and alternates to '''Color 1''' on the next '''swimlane''' up and so on until the top '''swimlane''' is reached.
 
 
To illustrate this, if we return to the '''Chart Properties''' form’s '''Main''' tab and reverse the '''colors''' selected for '''Color 1 '''and''' Color 2''', the new reconfigured chart looks like this:
 
 
<center>[[File:P70-12_24_1-(18)-08202020.png]]</center>
 
<!--<center>P70-12_24_1-(18)-08202020.png</center>-->
 
 
===Editing Swimlane Levels with Zebra Stripes===
 
 
In most cases, '''swimlanes '''and''' swimlane level cells''' can be '''edited''' regardless of whether '''swimlane levels''' are '''zebra striped''' or not.
 
 
For more information on '''editing swimlane '''properties, please see the article at: [[Editing Swimlane Properties for Version 7.0 | Editing Swimlane Properties]] <!--12.23.1-70-->
 
 
====Adding a Swimlane====
 
 
If you '''add '''a '''blank/empty swimlane''' to the chart, OnePager maintains the '''swimlane level zebra striping''' scheme as specified in the '''Chart Properties''' form by including the '''added swimlane''' as part of the scheme, assuming '''no maverick swimlane colors''' are contained in the chart.  As an example, the chart below has a '''blank/empty swimlane added below''' the '''Left#2 Planning Swimlane''' and applied to the chart configuration just above:
 
 
<center>[[File:P70-12_24_1-(19)-08202020.png]]</center>
 
<!--<center>P70-12_24_1-(19)-08202020.png</center>-->
 
 
In the chart illustrated above, OnePager maintains the arrangement of '''alternating color swimlane level zebra stripes''' starting with '''Color 2''' at the bottom most '''swimlane''' and working upward '''alternating colors''' between '''Color 2 '''and '''Color 1''' until the top most '''swimlane '''is''' zebra striped'''.
 
 
====Hiding a Swimlane====
 
 
If we return to the original chart, and '''hide '''the''' Left#2 Integration & Testing swimlane''', OnePager again maintains the same '''alternating color '''scheme from the bottom most '''swimlane''' to the top most '''swimlane''' in the chart as shown here after the designated '''Left#2 Integration & Testing swimlane''' is '''hidden''':
 
 
<center>[[File:P70-12_24_1-(20)-08202020.png]]</center>
 
<!--<center>P70-12_24_1-(20)-08202020.png</center>-->
 
 
The above chart maintains it proper '''swimlane level zebra striping''' scheme after the '''swimlane '''is''' hidden'''.
 
 
====Hiding a Row within a Swimlane====
 
 
When''' swimlane levels''' are '''zebra striped''', the '''striping''' is at the '''swimlane level''' and '''rows''' within the '''swimlane levels''' come along for the ride so to speak.  '''Hiding '''a''' row''' in any '''swimlane '''in a chart where '''swimlane level zebra striping '''is specified decreases the '''height of the swimlane''' without making any change to the '''swimlane level zebra striping''' scheme.
 
 
For more information on '''hiding and unhiding rows and swimlanes''', please see the article at: [[Hiding and Unhiding Rows and Swimlanes for Version 7.0 | Hiding and Unhiding Rows and Swimlanes]] <!--12.13.1-70-->
 
 
====Other Swimlane Edits====
 
 
OnePager attempts to maintain the specified '''swimlane level zebra striping''' when '''other row '''and''' swimlane edits''' are applied in the '''Chart Editor''' such as (1) '''Adding a swimlane''', (2) '''Splitting swimlanes''', (3) '''Grouping rows into swimlanes''', (4) '''Adding a row to a swimlane''', (5) '''Making each row into a swimlane (right-most swimlane level only)''', and (6) '''Merging swimlanes'''.

====Mavericking A Swimlane Level Background Color====
 
 
Returning to the starting configuration of the chart with '''Left#2 swimlane level zebra stripes''', if we '''maverick the swimlanes Background color''', that '''mavericked Background color''' is retained no matter how the '''swimlanes''' in the chart may be manipulated as described in previous examples.  To show this, suppose we '''maverick the Background color''' of the '''Left#2 Integration & Testing swimlane '''such that the '''new Background color''' for the '''swimlane''' and its''' member lower swimlane levels''', '''text column cells''', and '''rows '''are '''yellow''' as shown here:
 
 
<center>[[File:P70-12_24_1-(21)-08202020.png]]</center>
 
<!--<center>P70-12_24_1-(21)-08202020.png</center>-->
 
 
To complete the example, if we now '''add a blank/empty Left#2 swimlane level below''' the '''Left#2 Integration & Testing swimlane''', the chart is reconfigured to look like this:
 
 
<center>[[File:P70-12_24_1-(22)-08202020.png]]</center>
 
<!--<center>P70-12_24_1-(22)-08202020.png</center>-->
 
 
While the '''swimlane level zebra striping''' scheme may cause a change around the '''swimlane''' with the '''maverick Background color''', the '''swimlane level zebra striping''' scheme is maintained for the chart.  Moving '''swimlanes up and down''' in the chart (at any of the '''three swimlane levels''') using '''the swimlane drag and drop method''' does not alter the '''overall swimlane level zebra striping''' scheme.
 
 
For more information on '''moving swimlane up and down in the chart''', please see the article at: [[Moving Swimlanes for Version 7.0 | Moving Swimlanes]] <!--12.10.1-70-->
 
 
==Using Other Color Chart Fill Patterns in OnePager Pro Charts==
 
 
In addition to the '''row zebra striping''' and the '''three swimlane level zebra striping '''schemes, there are '''five other Chart fill patterns:''' options available for use as described in this section.
 
 
===Solid Color Option for the Graph Area===
 
 
The '''Solid Chart fill pattern:''' uses only '''Color 1''' to put a '''solid color''' into the '''graph area only''' as shown below:
 
 
<center>[[File:P70-12_24_1-(23)-08202020.png]]</center>
 
<!--<center>P70-12_24_1-(23)-08202020.png</center>-->
 
 
The '''Solid Chart fill pattern:''' option does not '''Background color''' either '''text column cells''' or any '''swimlane level cells''' '''defined''' and '''showing''' in the chart.  The '''Color 2''' dropdown list is ignored using the '''Solid Chart fill pattern:''' option.  '''Rows '''and''' swimlanes''' can be '''edited''' within the '''Chart Editor''' in most any manner and unchanged '''rows''' and '''swimlanes''' retain the selected '''Solid Chart fill pattern:''' as demonstrated in the two previous sections of this article for '''row zebra striping''' and '''swimlane level zebra striping'''.
 
 
===Top to Bottom Color Option for the Graph Area===
 
 
The '''Top to Bottom Chart fill pattern:''' option uses both '''Color 1''' and '''Color 2''' to show a '''transition of color''' in the '''graph area''' from '''Color 1''' at the '''top''' '''of the graph area''' to '''Color 2''' at the '''bottom of the graph area''' as shown dramatically in the illustration below:
 
 
<center>[[File:P70-12_24_1-(24)-08202020.png]]</center>
 
<!--<center>P70-12_24_1-(24)-08202020.png</center>-->
 
 
The '''Top to Bottom Chart fill pattern:''' option does not involve either '''text column cells''' or any '''swimlane level cells''' '''defined''' and '''showing''' in the chart.  '''Color 1''' and '''Color 2''' choice are both used in the '''Top to Bottom Chart fill pattern:''' option.  '''Rows '''and''' swimlanes''' can be '''edited''' within the '''Chart Editor''' in most any manner and unchanged '''rows''' and '''swimlanes''' retain the selected '''Top to Bottom Chart fill pattern:''' as demonstrated in the two previous sections of this article for '''row zebra striping''' and '''swimlane level zebra striping'''.
 
 
===Bottom to Top Color Option for the Graph Area===
 
 
The '''Bottom to Top Chart fill pattern:''' option uses both '''Color 1''' and '''Color 2''' to show a '''transition of color''' in the '''graph area''' from '''Color 2''' at the '''top''' '''of the graph area''' to '''Color 1''' at the '''bottom of the graph area''' as shown in the illustration below:
 
 
<center>[[File:P70-12_24_1-(25)-08202020.png]]</center>
 
<!--<center>P70-12_24_1-(25)-08202020.png</center>-->
 
 
The '''Bottom to Top Chart fill pattern:''' option does not involve either '''text column cells''' or any '''swimlane level cells''' '''defined''' and '''showing''' in the chart.  '''Color 1''' and '''Color 2''' choice are both used in the '''Bottom to Top Chart fill pattern:''' option.  '''Rows '''and''' swimlanes''' can be '''edited''' within the '''Chart Editor''' in most any manner and unchanged '''rows''' and '''swimlanes''' retain the selected '''Top to Bottom Chart fill pattern:''' as demonstrated in the two previous sections of this article for '''row zebra striping''' and '''swimlane level zebra striping'''.
 
 
===Left to Right Color Option for the Graph Area===
 
 
The '''Left to Right Chart fill pattern:''' option uses both '''Color 1''' and '''Color 2''' to show a '''transition of color''' in the '''graph area''' from '''Color 1''' at the '''left''' '''of the graph area''' to '''Color 2''' at the '''right of the graph area''' as shown in the illustration below:
 
 
<center>[[File:P70-12_24_1-(26)-08202020.png]]</center>
 
<!--<center>P70-12_24_1-(26)-08202020.png</center>-->
 
 
The settings in the '''Chart Properties''' form’s '''Main''' tab for the '''Left to Right Chart fill pattern:''' for the above illustration are shown here:

<!--<center>P70-12_24_1-(27)-08202020.png</center>-->
 
 
The '''Left to Right Chart fill pattern:''' option does not involve either '''text column cells''' or any '''swimlane level cells''' '''defined''' and '''showing''' in the chart.  '''Color 1''' and '''Color 2''' choice are both used in the '''Left to Right Chart fill pattern:''' option.  '''Rows '''and''' swimlanes''' can be '''edited''' within the '''Chart Editor''' in most any manner and unchanged '''rows''' and '''swimlanes''' retain the selected '''Left to Right Chart fill pattern:''' as demonstrated in the two previous sections of this article for '''row zebra striping''' and '''swimlane level zebra striping'''.

==Creating Multi-Page Output of Charts with Zebra Striping==
 
 
The full set of articles on '''multi-page output media''' for OnePager charts can be found at this link: [[Creating Multi-Page Charts with Version 7.0 (Portal) | Creating Multi-Page Charts (Portal)]] 8.6.1-70
 
 
The discussion that follows is intended to focus on how OnePager handles '''multi-page outputs''' where the charts contain either '''row zebra striping''' or '''swimlane level zebra striping'''.
 
 
===Creating Multi-Page Output Media with Charts Containing Row Zebra Stripes===
 
 
To start the discussion, the chart shown previously with '''row zebra striping''' shown below is going to be used:
 
 
<center>[[File:P70-12_24_1-(1)-08182020.png]]</center>
 
<center>P70-12_24_1-(1)-08182020.png</center>
 
 
For simplicity, the discussion is restricted to creating '''vertical multi-page output''' without showing the '''Legend'''.  To create a '''multi-page output''' from the above chart containing two vertical pages, go to the OnePager '''Page Layout '''ribbon tool bar tab and navigate to the '''Document Fitting''' control group, and change the '''Height''' option to '''2 pages''' as shown below:
 
 
<center>[[File:P70-12_24_1-(30)-08202020.png]]</center>
 
<center>P70-12_24_1-(30)-08202020.png</center>
 
 
When the above change is made, the '''page layout''' for '''printed output media''' is set to print two vertical pages as shown in the '''Page Break Mode''' display in the '''Chart Editor''' shown below:
 
 
<center>[[File:P70-12_24_1-(31)-08202020.png]]</center>
 
<center>P70-12_24_1-(31)-08202020.png</center>
 
 
For more information on the various '''view modes available on the Page Layout ribbon tool bar tab''', please see the article at: [[View Modes for Version 7.0 | View Modes]] 8.6.1.1-70
 
 
If we change to the '''Print Preview Mode''' in the '''Chart Editor''', the '''two page document''' is previewed to look like this:
 
 
<center>[[File:P70-12_24_1-(32)-08202020.png]]</center>
 
<center>P70-12_24_1-(32)-08202020.png</center>
 
 
As shown in the '''Print Preview''' above, OnePager maintains the '''row zebra striping''' scheme between '''Page 1 '''and''' Page 2'''.  Additionally, OnePager places the '''Page Break''' in a position to try and maintain an '''equal number of rows''' between the two pages.  The algorithm for this also attempts to minimize the number of '''swimlane level cell labels''' that must be '''repeated''' between pages.  In the above illustration only the '''Left#2 Integration & Testing swimlane level cell label''' is '''repeated''' from '''Page 1 '''to''' Page 2'''.  This same approach is continued for charts that have more '''rows''' and need to have their '''output media''' in the form of three or more pages.
 
 
===Creating Multi-Page Output Media with Charts Containing Swimlane Level Zebra Stripes===
 
 
When a chart contains one or more of the '''three possible swimlane level zebra striping''' schemes, OnePager attempts to follow the same vertical page division as used for charts for '''row zebra striping'''.  The chart below where '''swimlane zebra striping''' is applied at the '''Left#2 swimlane level''' is used as the  example:
 
 
<center>[[File:P70-12_24_1-(2)-08182020.png]]</center>
 
<center>P70-12_24_1-(2)-08142020.png</center>
 
 
To create a '''multi-page output''' from the above chart containing two vertical pages, go to the OnePager '''Page Layout''' ribbon tool bar tab and navigate to the '''Document Fitting''' control group, and change the '''Height''' option to 2 pages as shown below:
 
 
<center>[[File:P70-12_24_1-(33)-08202020.png]]</center>
 
<center>P70-12_24_1-(33)-08202020.png</center>
 
 
When the change shown above is made, the '''page layout''' for '''printed output media''' is set to print two vertical pages as shown in the '''Page Break Mode''' display in the '''Chart Editor''' shown below:
 
 
<center>[[File:P70-12_24_1-(34)-08202020.png]]</center>
 
<center>P70-12_24_1-(34)-08202020.png</center>
 
 
For more information on the various '''view modes available on the Page Layout ribbon tool bar tab''', please see the article at: [[View Modes for Version 7.0 | View Modes]] 8.6.1.1-70
 
 
If we change to the '''Print Preview Mode''' in the Chart Editor, the '''two page document''' is previewed to look like this:
 
 
<center>[[File:P70-12_24_1-(35)-08202020.png]]</center>
 
<center>P70-12_24_1-(35)-08202020.png</center>
 
 
As shown in the '''Print Preview''' above, OnePager maintains the '''swimlane level zebra striping''' scheme between '''Page 1 '''and''' Page 2'''.  Additionally, OnePager places the '''Page Break''' in a position to try and maintain an equal number of '''rows''' between the two pages.  The algorithm for this also attempts to minimize the number of '''swimlane level cell labels''' that must be '''repeated''' between pages.  In the above illustration only the '''Left#2 Integration & Testing swimlane level cell label''' is '''repeated''' from '''Page 1 '''to''' Page 2'''.  This same approach is continued for charts that have more '''rows''' and need to have their '''output media''' in the form of three or more pages.
