Description

The program enables exporting project drawings and results into a number of file formats (JPG, PDF, DWG, XLS and many more) and printing them. Exporting to DWG/DXF files is effected by means of a dedicated function, whereas exporting to many other file formats is done with functions used for outputting to a printer. It takes on the form of printing to a file of selected type.

Location in the program

  • The Export DXF/DWG file function is available on the Main tools bar when the Printout editing scope is enabled. The function enables exporting graphics from the project file to a DXF/DWG file.
    1. Export DXF/DWG file

  • Outputting to a printer and to other file formats is effected in the Printouts window. The Print function, available on the Main tools bar when the Printout editing scope is enabled, switches the program to that window. Alternatively this can be done by calling this window from the Windows menu on the Main tools bar.
    2. Print

  • The Insert page layout icon, available on the Main tools bar when the Printout editing scope is enabled, allows placing a Printout pages component in a drawing. Every such component in the project is a new definition of the scope of printout / export of graphics.
    3. Insert page layout

Example of use

Additional information

  • When underlay drawing was imported with the Save underlay drawing -> In external file option and original location of the file is not available, the underlay layers cannot be exported. In such case, in order to have the underlay drawing included in the export or printout, it must be loaded again.
  • User-defined and saved printout compositions, in addition to pre-defined compositions, will also be available in other projects.
