Insert snapshot of the current system into report
This component inserts a snapshot (screen capture) of the current
system into a report. A
System Snapshot must
be a child or descendant of a
System Loop component.
For HTML and
Direct PDF (from template) output,
the blocks and subsystems in the resulting image can link to associated
report information. For example, a block in the report can link to
a block property table. A subsystem can link to the subsystem block
diagram or to the block properties.
To enable this linking, select the Create link anchor for each object in loop check box on the appropriate loop component:
For blocks and masked subsystems in this system, select
the check box on the
Block Loop component that
reports on the system’s blocks.
To provide links to the sections that report on the
unmasked subsystems of this system, select the check box on the

Largest dimension vertical: Positions the image so that its largest
dimension is vertical.
Use system orientation: Uses the paper orientation setting for the
system. Use the Simulink®
PaperOrientation parameter to specify the orientation.
Full page image (PDF only): In PDF reports, scales images to fit
the full page, minimizes page margins, and maximizes the size of the image by
using either a portrait or landscape orientation.
Scaling: Controls the size of the image in the image file.
Automatic (default): Automatically scales the image to output
Custom: Specifies image size.
Zoom: Enlarges or reduces the image size to the percent that you
specify. Use Max Size to specify the maximum size other than
the default for the image.
Selecting Use printframe paper settings deactivates the
and automatically scales the image to the print frame size.
Include callouts to describe visible objects: Displays descriptive callouts for visible objects
Use printframe: Prints a frame around the image. You can use the default
rptdefaultframe.fig, or use the Frame Editor to build a custom
frame. For more information, see the
frameedit function in
The default frame is five inches wide and four inches high.
It includes the name of the system and the model folder. This frame
is optimized for use with a
portrait paper orientation.
The Flight Control Model in the
f14 Simulink model
appears here with the default Simulink
Report Generator™ frame option.

Scaling: Controls size of the image, as displayed in a browser. Making an image larger using this option does not affect the storage size of the image, but the quality of the displayed image may decrease as you increase or decrease the size of the displayed image.
Generally, to achieve the best and most predictable display results, use the default setting
Use image size.
Use image size: Causes the image to appear the same size in the
report as on screen (default).
Fixed size: Specifies the number and type of units.
Zoom: Specifies the percentage, maximum size, and units of
Size: Specifies the size of the snapshot in a browser, using the format
w h (width, height). This field is active only if you choose
Fixed size in the Scaling selection
Max size: Specifies the maximum size of the snapshot in a browser, using
w h (width, height). This field is active only if you
Zoom in the Scaling selection
Units: Specifies the units for the size of the snapshot in a browser.
This field is active only if you choose
Fixed size in the
Image size list box.
Alignment: Only reports in
support this property.
System name: Uses the system name as the image name.
Full system name: Uses the system name, with path information, as
the image name.
Custom: Specifies a custom title.
Description (use system description)
Custom: Specifies a custom caption.
