Choose a Letterhead format if you want to export a printable floor plan with optional logo, disclaimer text etc. The file format for the letterhead is PDF. When you are working on a Tablet, the file format for the letterhead is image.
Read more about Letterhead options and how to set it up here.
If you want to save your floor plans to a certain scale, use one of the Scale options. For example, choose Scale (1:100) if you want each meter in the project to be represented as a centimeter on the page.
Once you have saved your scaled floor plan to your computer or Mac, you can print the PDF. Please note that you need to choose Actual size in your printer options to get the correct scaling. If you do not choose this option, your printer will calculate the scaling size wrong because of the predefined page margins.
Choose a Web Image format if you want to export just the Floor Plan image, with no logo or surrounding text. The file format for the web image is JPG.
The following options for paper size are available:
- Tabloid (Ledger)*
*These options are only available for Save to Disk.
Additionally, you can also choose your preferred paper orientation, Portrait or Landscape.
