Adjust the Plot Offset of a Layout





The printable area of a drawing sheet is defined by the selected output device. When you change the output device, the printable area may change. The plot offset specifies an offset of the plot area relative to the lower-left corner (the origin) of the printable area or the edge of the paper, determined by the Offset option specified in the Print setup dialog.


If you choose to plot an area other than the entire layout, you can also center the plot on the sheet of paper by checking Center option in Scale and Offset. You can change the location of the layout on the paper by entering a positive or negative value in the Offset X and Offset Y boxes. However, this may result in the plot area being clipped.
