Description

The Layout menu is a drop-down menu at the top of the screen, and contains the following commands.

Detail Steps

Add Sheet...

Adds a tabbed sheet in which a new set of sheet objects can be displayed.
Provided that both client and server are QlikView version 9 or later, it is possible to add a new sheet to the layout even when working with a document on a QlikView Server.

Promote Sheet

Moves the (tab of the) current sheet one step to the left (forwards).

Demote Sheet

Moves the (tab of the) current sheet one step to the right (back).

Remove Sheet

Deletes the active sheet and everything on it.

Select Fields...

Opens the Fields property page of the Sheet Properties sheet. One or several field names can be selected from a list. The selected fields will be displayed in default configured list boxes on the active sheet. To set the specific properties of a list box right click on it and select Properties from the float menu (or from Object in the Main Menu). This command is not available when working with documents on QlikView Server.

Server Objects...

Opens the Server Objects dialog. Personal can be managed and server objects can be shared here. This menu option is only available when working with a document on QlikView Server and only if the server and the server document have been configured to allow server objects.

New Sheet Object

Opens a cascade menu in which it is possible to choose to create one of the different sheet objects. When created, the corresponding Properties dialog will be presented, for configuring the new object.
Provided that both client and server are QlikView version 8 or later it may be possible to add new sheet objects to the layout even if working with a document on QlikView Server. This requires
a) that the license is valid,
b) that the server document has been configured to allow server objects and
c) that the QlikView Server is configured to allow server objects.

Linked Objects

Opens a menu with the following commands for linked objects.
Adjust Position of Linked Objects
All linked objects on all sheets are adjusted to the same position and size as the one/ones highlighted.
Unlink This Object/Unlink Objects
This destroys the link between the objects, making them different objects with different object IDs.

Rearrange Sheet Objects

Automatically arranges the sheet objects on the active sheet.

Adjust object maximum size to current size

Some types of sheet objects, like list boxes, multi boxes and tables, may have a larger maximum size than what is currently utilized. This allows e.g. a table to expand on the sheet when more data is added. This operation resets the maximum object size to the currently used size for all selected objects on the active sheet. It is possible to use Ctrl+A to select all sheet objects on the sheet.

Adjust Off-Screen Objects

Any sheet object outside the visible area of the QlikView window is repositioned back inside the visible area.

Align/Distribute

The alignment of sheet objects can be determined here according to a number of alternatives e.g. Left Align, Center Horizontally.
