Subject: Customizing and reusing print settings

Most drawings require adjustments to print settings in order to print the way you want. You can make adjustments to the print settings each time you print, but you can also create page setups, which save the print settings and assign them to different lay­outs in your drawing. If you have several perspectives of your drawing that require printing, using page setups is the most efficient way to print.
