Subject: Specifying page setup options for a layout



Each layout can have its own page setup assigned to it. This enables you to accommo­date unique print settings for each layout. If some layouts use the same print settings, those layouts can be assigned the same page setup.

Assigning a page setup to a model or layout doesn’t mean it will always print with the specified settings. All of the print settings specified for a page setup can be overrid­den at print time.

For more details, see Working with page setups.
