There are two "modes" in the borehole view and cross section view: design mode and active mode. Active mode is the default mode when a blank borehole or cross section is created. When creating log items in active mode you are prompted for data to associate with each log.
If you prefer to design the borehole first and then associate data later, you can use design mode. This is a good option if you wish to create a borehole design, but do not have any actual data.
You can enter design mode using one of these methods:
Click the Log | Display | Design Mode command. The command stays highlighted to indicate you are in Design Mode.
Press F4 on your keyboard to toggle between active mode and design mode.
The View Mode in the Borehole View Properties and Cross Section View Properties indicates if you are in design mode or active mode.
When designing a borehole view in design mode the screen shows generalized representations of the various log types. The logs displayed in design mode are fictitious and intended to give an impression of how the borehole view will look when actual data is attached.
This borehole view is displayed in design mode. The logs and linked text do not
display actual data. Instead placeholders representing the logs and text appear.
When designing a cross section view in design mode the screen shows generalized representations of the zone bar logs. The logs displayed in design mode are fictitious and intended to give an impression of how the cross section view will look when actual data is attached. No layers are displayed between wells.
This cross section view is displayed in design mode. Zone bars are displayed
in design mode, but the layers between wells are not displayed.
