Selecting and setting up a printer

Select "File" > "Print" to open the Print dialog box, then click the Printer... button.

This opens the standard Windows Print Setup dialog:


Selecting a printer also selects a suitable paper size and paper orientation. Note that these are the size and orientation of the sheets of paper used in the printer. They are separate from the size/orientation of the document. Portrait prints the page without rotation. Landscape prints the page turned through 90° (these buttons are duplicated in the Print options dialog box, described later). We recommend leaving the Landscape/Portrait buttons on this dialog box on their default setting.

Please note: We cannot give you advice about installing or configuring printers as these are standard system operations. In case of difficulties, contact the supplier of your printer or computer.
