Subject: Creating a page setup

There are two types of page setups:

   Model page setup — Contains print settings available for the model on the Model tab.

   Layout page setup — Contains print settings available for one or more layouts on the Layout tabs.

CADdirect comes with two default page setups — one model page setup and one lay­out page setup. You can create as many additional page setups, of either type, as required for any drawing. Each page setup specifies many aspects of printing, includ­ing page size, default printer or plotter, page orientation, print scale, and more.

To create a page setup

   1   To create a model page setup, click the Model tab. To create a layout page setup, click any Layout tab.
