Setting Print Attributes

You can change aspects of the printed output's default appearance via the Print Attributes dialog. This dialog opens when you click the Print Attributes icon, or when you choose Settings > Print Attributes, in the Print dialog. Check boxes in the Print Attributes dialog let you vary the relevant settings for printing purposes. Additionally, you can turn on/off the display of a Print fence and/or the default Print border for your printer output.

When you turn on Print Border, you can add text in the Border comment field. This appears in the label outside the border and can include configuration variable references, which are expanded in the printed output. For example, if the configuration variable USER was defined as "John Smith" and you keyed in the description "User=$(USER)," the printed output would expand to "User=John Smith" in the printed output.
