Prepare Pages for Printing
Use the
Page Setup
option in the
Print
section to prepare pages when you want to print views.
Follow these steps:
  1. Click
    Page Setup
    in the
    Print
    section of the application menu.
  2. Complete the fields in the
    Margins
    section.
    The default setting for the left and right margins is 1 inch (2.5 centimeters). The default setting for the top and bottom margins is 1.5 inches (3.75 centimeters). The margins may not be exact. Laser printers cannot print to the edge of the paper, so a margin set to zero starts at 0.25 inches. This unprintable area varies depending on the printer.
  3. Select one of the following options in the
    Page Order
    section to determine what to print first:
    • Rows First, then Columns
      Prints the rows first and then the columns when multiple pages are required to print the entire view.

Preview Project in a View Before Printing
To preview the project to see how it prints, open the project and click
Print Preview
in the
Print
section of the application menu. This option is unavailable when you are printing from a dialog.
Print Projects from Views
You can print a project to which a view is applied. Use the
Print
dialog in the application menu to print one or more copies of project data from a view. You can also select special printer settings using this dialog. You can print from the spreadsheet and CPM network views. Set print margins to at least 0.75 in. When you print views with the top and bottom print margins set small (less than 0.75 in. in the
Page Setup
dialog), view data may overwrite the headers and footers.
The
Print to file
check box in the
Print
dialog is unavailable when printing graphical views such as the Gantt Chart or CPM views. When printing more than one copy of a document with more than one page, select or clear the
Collate
check box to define whether to print each document set in the page order.
