Document Presentation properties
Property Description
Default Theme for New Objects A QlikView theme can be selected here which will applied to all newly created sheets and sheet objects in the document. The selected theme must be accessible from disc at all times in order to be used. It is also important that the theme used is defined for all types of objects that may occur in a QlikView document.
At the bottom of the drop-down list there is a Browse... command in case the theme file resides in another location than in the default QlikView theme catalog. If no default theme is used, each new sheet object will inherit the properties of the last created or changed object.
Alignment The default alignment of field values can be set separately for Text and Numbers. As default, text values are left aligned, numbers values are right aligned.
Multiline Cells If the Wrap Text option is checked, the (text) contents of the cell (field value) will be displayed in two or more lines.
The number of cell lines is set in the Cell Height ( Lines ) edit box.
  • Single Column: Checking this option forces single column mode.
  • Order by Column: In multiple column displays the field values will be ordered by column, rather than by row.
  • Cell Borders: Checking this option will introduce horizontal lines between field values.
Default Search Mode
  • Use Previous: The search mode of the last completed search will be used.
  • Use Wildcard Search: The initial search string will be two wildcards with the cursor between them to facilitate a wildcard search.
  • Use Normal Search: No additional characters will be added to the search string. Without wildcards, a Normal Search will be made.
