Caption Formulas


A caption formula is a string enclosed by the Pipe symbol (|) that will evaluate a text value during the plotting process. To begin a caption formula, place your cursor in the Caption entry box and type in a (|) symbol. A list of available formula strings will become available below the box. Select (by highlighting and pressing enter) or type in the name of one of these formula strings and complete with a (|) symbol again. Only one formula string per (|) enclosure is allowed.


The type of formula strings available depend on the type of graphic that is displayed. For example, a risk formula string would not be available for formatting probability maps.
