To Preview a File to Be Printed

To see how the contents of the View window will appear when printed with the current Print dialog box settings:

  1. Choose Print Preview from the File menu.

    The Print Preview dialog box appears.

    If the image is too big to fit on a single page, lines in the Print Preview window show you the boundaries of the printed page.

  2. To control which area of the image or page is printed, move the pointer into the window (it changes to a hand shape) and use mouse button 1 to drag the image into position.

  3. To print the image, click Print, and then click Print in the Print dialog box that is displayed.

    See "Print Dialog Box" for information about print settings.

  4. Click Close to close the Print Preview dialog box.
