Specifies the print layout for the drawings to be printed. These settings apply to all drawings you have selected to print. This dialog box opens when you click Settings on the Print dialog box.


Controls the scale applied to the print area in a document.

Best fit — Scales the selected drawing sheets or print area to fit the printer paper for the configured device.

Manual scale — Specifies the scale value to apply to the print range during printing. For example, if the print range is a rectangle at 12 cm by 12 cm and you set a manual scale of 1:12, then the printed range appears to be 1 cm by 1 cm on the printer paper. If you want a 1:1 drawing of the current sheet scale, you can set the Paper length option to 1 and the Design length option to 1.

Paper length — Specifies the paper length for the document you want to print with respect to the Design length option.

Design length — Specifies a design length (size of the printed graphic) with respect to the Paper length option.


Adjusts the origin of the graphic area, thereby changing the location of the effective print area on the paper.

Center — Positions the print area center to the center of the printer paper. If you do not set this option, then the paper positions at bottom left to bottom left.

X origin — Sets a shift in the x-direction from the origin.

Y origin — Sets a shift in the y-direction from the origin.


Displays dynamically how the graphic prints on the sheet as you change other options on the dialog box.

For many of the options on this dialog box such as, Design length, Paper length, X, Y, and so forth, when you change an option, the red, blue, and black boxes in the Preview area change to reflect your new values. Therefore, you have a dynamic representation of how your graphic fills the printed sheet.
