Scale Image to Page Size

When you print a diagram, the default setting is to scale the image to fit the size of the printer paper you have defined in the page set-up. The image is not scaled up to fill the page, but it is scaled down if it exceeds the current page boundary. The image retains its current proportions; that is, it is scaled down equally in the X and Y dimensions. For a large diagram, this can mean that the components of the diagram are small and hard to read.

Alternatively, you can print a multi-page image; that is:

·allow the diagram image to print on as many printer pages as it naturally occupies, (no scaling), or
·scale the diagram image to exactly fit a specified number of pages

In all three cases you also define the paper size and orientation.
