Printing

EnviroInsite can print to any Microsoft (MS) Windows printer accessible to your computer. To print, set the view to show only what you want to print. Modify the view shape to reduce the amount of white space around whatever is in the plot window. Select File> Print from the main menu and the Print Preview window will appear. Modify the plot margins, paper size and orientation, and printed scale. Select to print in color or black and white.

Select Printer

 

Select any MS Windows compatible printer by clicking the Select Printer button and have access to all of the print setup options.

 

Scale

 

There is no scale set when viewing on the screen since the scale changes as the window size changes. Therefore, the printing scale needs to be set. In most cases you will want to check the Scale to Fit box to have the image fill the entire printed page. You can select a particular print scale by entering values under Printer Units and Drawing Units and removing the check from Scale to Fit.
