Print Setup dialog

The Print Setup dialog of Visual Database Designer provides two tabs for setting printing options: Printer and Page options.


The Printer tab of the Print Setup dialog allows you to:

  • specify the printer (use the Choose printer button to select a printer which is not set by default on your system; the name, driver, port fields display the selected printer details);
  • specify print layout: print using a defined scale factor or arrange diagram at a defined number of pages horizontally and vertically;
  • set other print options.

  • specify page margins (in millimeters): Top margin, Bottom margin, Left margin, Right margin;
  • specify Page header and Page footer: enter the header/footer running titles text, set left/center/right align.
