With the consequent focus of VCmaster as a tool for digital structural
analysis, managing edited or extended pages became more and more
important. Resulting in expanding functionality for page numbering.
The following options are available:
These pages are given separate numbering in addition to the existing number. For example, if three pages are added after page 16, these are given the page numbers 16.1, 16.2 and 16.3.
If pages are modified, they can be provided with an index. For example, if pages 12-15 are modified, the page numbers will be 12a to 15a. Any upper/lower case letter can be specified as the index.
Place holder for pages:
Any pages, such as the outputs of other programs, can be integrated in the document later
on. The number of pages to be inserted later is specified by the user. These are skipped when numbering the pages. The table of contents also takes them into account. A heading can even be specified for the pages to be added, e.g. "Electronic calculation with FE program". Example: If ten pages of another program are to be included after page 23, the 24th page is given page number 34 on the printout, etc. If a PDF file is specified, it is automatically
embedded in the PDF export, even if the page format is different.
Chapters can begin with a new page number. A chapter ID can be prefixed to the page number.
Inserted and modified pages each require a start and end mark.
For transparent assignment, it is useful to insert a fixed page break
after the start and end mark or to set the marks before the
corresponding breaks. The input is similar for modified pages.
The function Keep
has the effect of retaining previous data
with every new input. This allows for nesting of functions. For example,
an inserted page can be given the index of a modification (e.g. 12.5a).
By using a placeholder the user specifies the number of pages to be
inserted later on. These are skipped when numbering the pages. The table
of contents also takes them into account. A heading can even be
specified for the pages to be added, e.g. "Electronic calculation with
FE program". Example: If ten pages of another program are to be included
after page 23, the 24th page is given the page number 34 on the printout,
