Generating and exporting reports
Most reports can be generated inside a drawing and exported as tab separated values (.tsv). To generate a report inside a drawing, simply drag and drop a report symbol from the Report stencil, then right click and select Generate.
Report symbols can be resized by dragging on their handles and when a report is generated, Electra automatically create additional report symbols if the content overflows a single symbol. Columns in report symbols can be resized by clicking on the report symbol, then on any column, and dragging on the handles. Some columns may contain options to hide a column, simply right click on a column when it is selected, and choose Hide Column.
