Previewing Plots

There are several ways to preview your printed output. You can:

  • view a thumbnail preview in the Print dialog (File > Print > Print)
  • open the resizable preview window (File > Print > Print Preview) for more accurate previewing
  • view a thumbnail preview in Print Organizer (File > Print > Print Organizer) by double-clicking a print definition in the right pane or right-clicking a print definition and choosing Properties
  • view one or more print definitions in Print Organizer's (File > Print > Print Organizer) resizable window by choosing Print Preview from the File menu.

Using the Show design in preview check box in the Print dialog's Preview section or the Show design in overview check box in Print Organizer's Properties dialog, you can quickly review the drawing as it will appear on the selected drawing sheet. For more detail you can use the Print dialog's resizable Preview dialog or Print Organizer's resizable Preview dialog to review how the selected area will be printed on the chosen printer.
