User’s Guide

Introduction

The Narcoossee Parcel Legal Description Report (Basic Version) for AutoCAD® Civil 3D® by civil+plus® allows you to automatically create a legal description document directly from the geometry of selected parcels. It uses the parcel description field as a source of property owner and tax ID information.

NOTE: This report is configured for use with imperial units only. If a metric version is required, please contact us to discuss this (and any other) customization.

Running the report

To run the report:

  1. Open the AutoCAD Civil 3D ToolSpace pane and expand the nodes to find this report, as shown below.

  2. Once the proper report node has been found, either: right-click and select ‘execute’, or just double click…
  3. If the report has not yet been activated, you will be prompted for activation…provide the code given in your order receipt email.
  4. After successfully verifying an activated license for this report, the application will open the ‘Run Report’ dialog:
  5. From here, you may: save settings, load previously saved settings, show a ‘preview’ of the report, and insert the report directly to the DWG.
    1. If you show a preview, you will be able to: print, export as a PDF, XLSX, etc.
    2. If you insert to the DWG, you will have the option of inserting to model space or one of the various paper space layouts in your active drawing.

The Run Report Dialog

The Run Report Dialog allows you to specify query and selection set options for running a report in addition to options for inserting the report to a DWG (including pagination, layout, etc):

Set Queries

Queries are defined on the ‘Root Queries’ sub-tab of the ‘Set Queries’ tab.

To specify a selection set to apply your query options to, use the selection set field. This field has 3 command buttons:

  • Shows a drop down list of all items of the targeted type in the current DWG (as shown above)
  • Clears the selection set
  • Allows you to graphically select items from the DWG

If you leave your selection set empty, the query will execute against ALL entities in the DWG; if you specify even one item, the query will run against only those item(s) contained in the selection set.

You may specify values to use as filters for the various properties listed. The filter values specified will be used in constructing the query which is executed against the selection set to determine which entities contribute to a report. To allow any value for a given property, use an asterisk (‘*’) as a wildcard; to allow only those entities with a specific value for a property, enter the literal text value for that property, or use a combination of a partial value with a wildcard to search for all similar values (e.g. ‘ABC*’ will match ‘ABC’, ‘ABC123’, ‘ABCD’, etc.)

This report contains several parameters which are used in generating the report – this may be set using the ‘Report Parameters’ sub-tab:

This report does not contain any reference queries, however, for general information on all tabs please consult the General Help file for Compiled Reports .

Options

The options tab enables you to control how a report will insert into a DWG. You may control such properties as layer, scale, pagination (single continuous page or paginated), multi-page layout options, etc.

When you are done setting the queries, options, etc, you can execute and render a report using one of two options:

  • Preview the report (see below).
  • Insert the report to a DWG

If you choose to insert to DWG, you can click on the pull-down list on the ‘Insert to DWG’ button to access a list of workspaces to insert to, including model space and all of your layouts defined in the currently active DWG file.
