This dialog can be used to print the drawing area to a printer
or to save it as a PS (Postscript) file. The following formats
It is recommend to use a trailing ".ps" for generated
- A3 Landscape, Portrait
- A4 Landscape, Portrait
- A5 Landscape, Portrait
The generated output contains always bitmap data. Only if you save
mode, the output is resolution independent
vector data. The advantage of vector data format
is that they is displayed at always the best quality
at any output device.
The export printer dialog is the best choose for generating standalone
documents or for direct printing, because the output is formated
as you selected in the dialog window.
If you want to embedd the
output in other documents it is recommend to use the
export image dialog.
The export printer function always grabs the full drawing
area, the rotation point marker and the coordinate system
marker too. So it is recommend to disable this features before
exporting to printer or postscript file.
