Select the Plot Area of a Layout





You can specify the plot area to determine what will be included in the plot. The plot area can be selected easily by checking Area, as illustrated by the picture, and then clicking Select Area... button. Once this button is pressed, the Print Setup dialog will temporarily disappear, and you will be able to select a rectangle area on your CAD drawing. Once you complete the selection, the StartX, StartY, EndX, EndY will be updated to reflect the selected area.


In addition to the Area option in the Print Area group, the Display option allows you to plot your current view. The Extents option plots all the visible objects in the drawing.
