Some questions about reports

Hello, I have some questions about reports.


1. Calculation of wires length in From/To report.

I now, there is a column CLEN – “Panel layout calculated wire length”.

BUT! How realistic is this length? What way is it calculated when we have wires only on schematic panel? Why could it (length) be more then 100 for nearby components? Why are length values mostly empty? What does it depend on?


2. BOM

I need tags sorting in Normal tallied format or specific tags presentation in Display in “By TAG” format.


What kind of specific?

SQ1.1 – SQ4.2

instead of










or SQ1.1, SQ1.2 when there are only two elements.

Is there any possibility to reach this format?


3. Output table format.

I put a repot on the drawing and want every line has height 8mm and the long text automatically goes on the next line. How can I do it?
