Subject: Assigning a page setup to a model or layout

Because the main model on the Model tab and the various layouts for printing on the Layout tabs all may require unique print settings, the model and each layout can be assigned a separate page setup. 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.

To assign a page setup to a model or layout

   1   Click the Model tab or Layout tab that you want to assign a page setup.

   2   Do one of the following to choose Page Setup Manager ():

   On the ribbon, choose the Application button then choose Page Setup Manager, or choose Output > Page Setup Manager (in Print).

   On the menu, choose File > Page Setup Manager.

   On the Format toolbar, click the Page Setup Manager tool.

   Type pagesetup and then press Enter.

   3   Select the desired page setup.

   4   Click Set Current.

   5   Click OK.

You can also choose a page setup at print time.
In the Print dialog box, select a different page setup from the Page Setup list before you click Print.
