Adjust the size of a tree chart

Before printing, you must make sure that the size and orientation of the paper are set as you wish.

  • Choose File menu > Page Setup or unfold the Print Setup panel and then click Page Setup.

  • Select the printer you will use in the Format For menu.
  • Choose a standard paper size in the Paper Size menu. If you want to select a customized paper size, choose Manage Custom Sizes from the menu.
  • Click the button corresponding to the desired orientation.
  • If necessary, enter a percentage in the Scale field. A value below 100% reduces the image, a value greater than 100% enlarges it.
  • Click OK to confirm the print size.

If the tree is too large, you may change its size by reducing the num­ber of pages in the Print Setup panel.

  • Tick the Show Page Breaks box. Heredis displays how many pages corresponding to the selected paper size will be needed to print the tree chart.
  • Change the number of pages in width and/or height.
  • To enlarge or reduce the overall size of the tree chart, enter a per­centage in the Scale field or move the cursor. A value below 100% reduces the size of the tree chart, a value greater than 100% enlarges it.

Info • Modification of the print setup may require the moving of new overlapping boxes.

  • It only remains to launch the printing of the tree chart.
