I have to say – at the risk of sounding like an old man – i don’t understand twitter…

Help: how to create an interactive (Google) map?

Wednesday, November 4th, 2009

Goto –> tools –> manage forms and create a new form or update your existing form.

The interactive map plugin needs 2 or 3 fields. A field that represents the name of the street, one for the number (not required) and one for the name of the city.

Create these 3 fields first. Add the fields one by one by clicking the add form Object icon. Choose in dropdown ‘type’ for one of the first 4 fieldtypes (small to extra large).

The last step is to create the map plugin. Click the add form Object icon, choose a name for it (eg. interactive map) and choose in the dropdown ‘type’ for ‘Interactive map‘. A popup will appear. Connect the corresponding fields in the dropdowns. Save the object and you’re done.

Screenshot of the result.

Help: how to print labels?

Wednesday, November 4th, 2009

You can print data – for instance addresses – to labels from within Grubba.

First you need to set your preferences for your current form (one time action).  Goto –> preferences

Select the fields you would like to show up in the labels by clicking the fields in the second listbox called .pdf labels (Hold CTRL pressed for multiple selections).  You can select up to 6 fields.

Then scroll down to .pdf export settings and set the margins of your labelsheets. These are in millimeters.

Save your preferences by clicking the save icon: disk

The next step is to make a selection.

Goto –> search or click the browse all records icon: browse to list the addresses or other data you want to print. Then click the export .pdf labels icon: pdf_labels to generate a .pdf file with the labels.

When using large-datasets, it can take a few seconds before you are asked what to do with the .pdf file.

Like most things in Grubba: easy as pie…
