The Print button opens the Print Preview dialog, which displays a preview of the current document that will be printed. The button is available in the Outputs | Documentation region of the schematic and PCB editors.

Dialogs and commands that can be accessed from the Preview dialog are also described on this page.

The Print Preview dialog allows you to view printouts and edit their setup definitions before actually printing.

The dialog can also be accessed by right-clicking on a schematic or PCB document in the Projects panel then choosing Print Preview.

Right-click Menu

The key commands available on the right-click menu of the top two regions are described below.

  • Export Metafile - use this command to export the current preview as a Windows Enhanced Metafile (*.EMF).
  • Page Setup - use this command to open a dialog to change printing properties of the current preview, such as paper size, scale and color.
  • Print - use this command to open a dialog to configure printer options then print.
  • Setup Printer - use this command to open a dialog to configure printer properties.

    If the Print Preview dialog opens with only a single schematic sheet showing, select Setup Printer from the dialog's right-click menu then in the Print What region of the Printer Configuration dialog, change the setting to Print All Valid Documents.
  • Configuration - use this command to open a print dialog to change advanced print properties, such as the layers and objects to be printed. 
  • Zoom In/Out - use to zoom in/out. Zooming can also be done by using the Ctrl+mouse wheel or the Page Up and Page Down keys. You can pan around the zoomed view by holding down the right-click mouse button then dragging the document. Use Shift+mouse wheel to scroll horizontally and the mouse wheel to scroll vertically. 
Many of the right-click commands have a corresponding shortcut, which are listed on the right-click menu next to the corresponding commands.
