Printing your Landscape Design
Use the Print command to print your landscape design
to any graphics printer supported by Windows.
To print your landscape design:
Select File > Print. The following dialog will appear.
the Portrait and Landscape options to select the orientation on paper.
Use this option if you want to print in black and white.
Crop marks are added automatically when the landscape design spans
multiple sheets. You can turn these off if desired.
Print to one
Use this option if you want to automatically scale the landscape
design to fit to one sheet of paper.
x by y sheets
Use this option if you want your landscape
design scaled to fit the specified number of sheets of paper.
Use this option to determine the output quality level. Low
quality printouts are faster, but high quality is crisper and more detailed.
This shows you how many sheets of paper will be required based on
your current settings. The green shaded area represents your landscape design;
white represents the portion of the printer paper that will remain blank.
Select the desired options and click OK. A dialog similar to the
following will appear. (The actual dialog will depend on your version of Windows
and which printer you are using.)
Select the desired printer and number of copies. Then click OK.
Printing to Multiple Sheets
When printing to multiple sheets (using the fit to
option), be sure the print crop marks option is selected. This will cause
small black lines to print at the edge of each sheet. These show you which edges
to trim in order to join the sheets together. (The sheets aren’t numbered, but
you should be able to easily determine which sheets go where.)
