Exporting 2D drawings

Exporting plans

You can use this tab to print or export the plan view as defined in the 2D Drawing Window.

On the left, the 'Preview' area shows you a preview of what is going to be printed. If you want a more detailed view of what will be printed, click 'Print Preview...' at the bottom of the window.

On the right are several options. The preview view will update if you make changes to these:

Scaling

You can choose two options:

Orientation

Click the radio buttons to choose between portrait and landscape.

Text

If you select the 'Add Title' check box, a title will be added to your image. Click the drop down menu to choose between 'Top Centre' and 'Top Left'.

You can type in text for the main title and two subtitles, and edit the font and colour of each using the buttons on the right.

If you click 'Add Legend', then a legend will be added.

Border

If you select the 'Add Border' check box, then a line will be drawn around the image (ie. not around the title as well). You can adjust the line colour and lineweight using the drop down menus to the right.
