1.  Settings Panel
When the print screen is initially loaded, this area will contain a list of all plans and reports available in Measure. Include one in your printout/PDF by checking the box to the left of it. Click the Print_Settings_Button.png button next to a report to adjust its settings.

Note: Each report has its own settings that do not overlap those of other reports. For example, setting the Room Plan to a landscape orientation will only cause that plan to print in landscape mode.

Additional settings are displayed in this area when one of the options from the Print Configuration panel (see point 3 below) is selected.

2.  Print Preview
Displays an example of how the report(s) will appear once printed/exported. By default, the preview will not be refreshed each time a change is made. Instead, a box will appear in the center with an option to refresh the preview at any time.

Use the scroll bars below and to the right of the preview to scroll in any direction, or move the cursor over the preview, hold down the left mouse button, and move the cursor. Zoom in or out by rolling the mouse wheel up or down, or use the zoom slider (see point 4 below).
