Click File > Page Setup.
Change the settings as desired and click OK.
Use the Page Setup command to set up the print
scale, drawing size, and lot size for your landscape design, as well as

Also, when using the Print Top-Down to File command, the output is always to a

For example, suppose you set this to 1" = 10'. When printing the top-down view

drawing size shows you how big your landscape is in terms of paper size. If the
drawing size is larger than the size of a single sheet of paper, then Realtime
Landscaping Pro can automatically print to multiple sheets of paper. In this
case crop marks will be printed to show you where the pages join together.

x 457 m) are supported, which is over 50 acres. However, since larger lot sizes
use more memory, you should use the smallest lot size that encompasses your
Portrait and Landscape options to select the orientation on paper.
