What to Print
Choose either Current View to print the view in the current viewport, Extents to print the portion of the current space of the drawing that contains objects, or Window to select a portion of the current viewport to print.. If you choose Window, click on the Window button to make a selection.

Choose predefined or custom scales for the printed output. If Custom is selected, enter the number of plotted units that equate to drawing units to give the print scale. Also, specify whether the scale values are in millimetres or inches.

Orientation and Copies
Select either Portrait or Landscape orientation, and the number of copies to be printed.

Render Mode
This option is applicable to 3D objects. These can be printed either as wireframe, or with hidden lines removed.

Plot Styles
This option relates to pen assignments. A plot style is a collection of property settings that defines colors and line weights on printed output. If you are using a plot style, from the drop-down list, select the plot style table to use, and check the Use Plot Styles box.

Select this option to print in Color, Grayscale or Black. Printing in black on a monochrome printer ensures that all objects are clearly visible.
