Step 1: Configuring the print parameters

This step enables you to choose:
  • the print settings of the document (quality, number of copies, ...).
  • the parameters for configuring the printer (printer driver, orientation, paper format, ...).
This step is optional.

This step must be performed if the default parameters (defined in the control panel of Windows) are not suitable for the print.

The different operations
The different operations are as follows:

1. Selecting the print parameters of the document (打印参数). You can:

  • open the window for configuring the print.
  • configure the print parameters one by one (height and width of the page, number of copies, ...).

2. Choosing the printer used for the print (打印配置). You can:
  • open the window for printer selection.
  • modify the printer used for the current print. This modification can be temporary (for the current program) or permanent.
Linux 打印配置 is not available.

3. Redefining the print margins (打印边距). The top, bottom, left and right margins can be modified. If this function is not called, the default margins (differ according to the selected printer) will be used.

Caution: The order of the above-mentioned operations must be respected. If a print is in progress, 打印参数 and 打印配置 cancel the current print.

Functions used to configure the destination of the print
The following functions are used to configure the destination of the print and to find out the current configuration:
打印预览 / 打印目标Configures the destination of the print.
打印配置Configures the printer.
打印打印机信息Retrieves the characteristics of the current or default printer.
打印打印机列表Returns the list of printers installed on the current computer.
打印参数Configures the print.

The configuration and the setting performed by 打印配置 and 打印参数 reinitialize the print module. Therefore, these functions must be the first print functions called. All the print functions called before these two functions will be ignored.

Linux The print can be performed in PDF format only.
