When it's time to print your document, Canvas X Draw provides a full range of printing options, allowing you to quickly deliver high quality printed documents or postscript files for professional printing. In Canvas X Draw to can choose whether to print an entire document, a selection of objects, or a selection of pages. You can also make use of layers to show or hide objects so that you only print what you need. For example, if you added annotations to a layer in your document during a review, you can choose to not print that particular layer when you print the document.
If your document uses a standard paper size and you want to print all the visible objects on the page, you can simply select a printer and print the document. However, Canvas X Draw also offers the flexibility to print multiple pages on a page, scale the page to fit the paper, print color, print registration marks, and much more.
See the Canvas X Draw Help for a description of all the options available in the Print dialog box.
The print preview reflects the current print settings and the page setup. In the preview, you can see which objects, layers, and pages will be printed. You can make sure the layout fits in the printable area of the paper. If you choose the Tile option in the Page Setup tab or dialog box, the preview shows the tiles as separate pages.
If you want to print only a selected area of a page, you can set the print area to define how much of the page is printed. This can be especially useful for large documents that don't fit easily on standard sizes of paper or complex documents where you want to focus on a single component. Once you have set a print area, you can choose to toggle it on or off depending on whether you want to print just the print area or the entire document.
