Hi in PCAD2011 there was an option to "Print only area within specified window," this check box (in the scale/view TAB of the print window). This would cause PCAD to print only the windowed selected area, or use the window to centre the print view around the selected window.
Is this option still available int PCAD2013? i can't seem to find it in the new print dialog.

Hi Tyson,

This function is now under the "Print Area" region of the "Page Setup" dialog box for the PLOT command in progeCAD 2013 Professional, as show below:


The "window selection" printing method is as follows:
  • Select Printer, Page size and orientation, scale and units if necessary
  • Select "Window" as "What to print"
  • Click the "Select Print Area" button to choose the area to be printed
  • Click "OK" to Print or Print Preview as desired

This new "Page Setup" Dialog Box in progeCAD 2013 greatly simplifies the previous printing method by offering an overview of most settings in one window, without the need to "tab" along the setting categories to which you refer.
