IMPORTANT! This is a Laboratory tool and is not for production use. It may have documented known issues, may not be feature complete, may not be backwards compatible, and is subject to change.
The Visual Layout tool brings together reporting elements so they can be arranged on a page and output in a report via the Render tool. The Visual Layout tool supports non-grouped elements only. To arrange grouped elements, see Layout Tool.
Use the Visual Layout tool to select a report type, arrange report elements on the page, and visualize how the report will look. The Visual Layout tool accepts multiple inputs, provides a preview of report elements, offers multiple output types and page sizes, and allows for both a horizontal and vertical layout.
Add reporting tools to a workflow to create chart, image, legend, map, table, and text elements, and connect them to the Visual Layout tool. Place Header, Footer, Email, and Render tools after the Visual Layout tool in the workflow. Run the workflow before configuring the Visual Layout tool.
The Visual Layout tool does not support the Overlay Tool and Layout Tool elements.
A Composer file provides the option for choosing any report type when the workflow is saved to the Gallery.
Updates made in the Visual Layout tool to the report type and page settings will not automatically update the Render tool. Make the changes directly in the Render tool, or delete the Render tool and add a new one.
The spacing of moved elements does not display accurately when Excel and Email report types are rendered.
A chart, image, or map element has a resize handle on the bottom right corner of its boundary to indicate the element can be resized while maintaining the aspect ratio. A table or text element has a resize handle on the right side of its boundary to indicate the element width can be changed.
