File - Print

The contents of any component window may be printed in a default way with File - Print. The component will be printed on a single sheet (or multiple sheets in the case of text components using a simple dialog to set up the page. For much greater control over the appearance of a print job, use a Layout for printing.

 

The File - Print command calls the standard Windows Print dialog:

 

General tab

Choose the printer to use, the page range to print, collation and the number of copies.

 

The Printing Preferences dialog invoked by pressing the Preferences button in the Print dialog includes the following additional tabs (in older Windows versions these tabs may appear in the Print dialog itself):

 

Layout tab

Choose paper orientation from Portrait or Landscape. Includes an Advanced button to access any advanced configuration options available for the selected printer.

Paper/Quality tab

Choose paper tray selection. Also includes an Advanced button to access any advanced configuration options available for the selected printer.
