In Enterprise Studio, models or parts of it can be directly printed on any printer available on your system. To print a model, make sure the model you want to print is selected in the model browser, and do as follows:
- On the File tab, click Print, and then click Print, or press Ctrl+P.
In Print what? you can specify whether you want to print the entire model or specific diagrams or views from it. When printing the complete model, Enterprise Studio prints the diagrams in the order in which they appear in the model browser.
Additionally, the number of copies can be set, and on how many pages the print must fit. The last option can be very useful when a large printout of the model is needed. The printed pages can later easily be taped to each other.
When clicking Properties you can change the properties of the printer, like which printer, double sided printing, paper size, etc. (options depending on your printer).
The page setup for printing models is specified separately. You can do this by clicking File > Print > Page Setup. The settings in this window are also used for RTF reports. See RTF settings for reporting models for the various options.
If you want to include viewpoints when printing diagrams or views, make sure that these viewpoints are activated in the corresponding diagrams and views. When printing diagrams and views, the information that is currently shown in the diagram or view will be printed. For example, when you have activated a color view, this view is included when printing.
It is possible to make a print preview of the selected diagram or view. This preview shows the diagram or view as it will be printed on the selected printer. The preview allows showing several pages at the same time, and zooming in and out. You can get a print preview by clicking Print preview active diagram in the Print window, but you can also get it via File > Print > Print Preview.
