Tips for printing multiple-page diagrams or mind maps
Here are some tips that can make printing multiple-page diagrams or mind maps easier.
•Viewing the page lines can often be helpful. To show the page lines, you first must set the Print Size option in Page Setup to Actual Size or Actual Size with Smart Page Breaks. On the File menu, choose Page Setup. Click the Layout tab, select Actual Size or Actual Size with Smart Page Breaks, then click OK. To show the page lines, choose Page Lines on the View menu.
•While in Diagram View, you can reposition your symbols slightly so they fit intact on the pages. On the Symbol menu, choose Adjust For Page Breaks to automatically move symbols slightly so that they won't split across two pages.
•At print time, you can also use the Actual Size with Smart Page Breaks Print Size option in Page Setup (choose Page Setup on the File menu, click the Layout tab, then select Actual Size with Smart Page Breaks) to automatically adjust the symbols in a diagram so they fit intact on a page. The diagram or mind map prints in actual size, and will fill as many pages as necessary.
•To have your diagram or mind map easily fit on one page, use the 1 Page Print Size option (choose Page Setup on the File menu, click the Layout tab, then select 1 Page). The diagram or mind map is automatically centred and reduced so that it prints on one page.
•To make small adjustments as you move a single symbol or groups of symbols, use the Nudge tool on the Formatting toolbar. See Positioning an object precisely using the Nudge tool.
•If you need to move the entire diagram or mind map at once, choose Select All on the Edit menu, then drag the diagram or mind map to the location you want or use the position tool.
•Make your final adjustments when viewing the diagram or mind map in actual size (100 percent). It's difficult to make fine adjustments when the view is reduced.
