You can easily print the active drawing of the project (the drawing which you clicked on the last time) by simply using the File / Print command of the Touch menu board.

If you wish to print the drawing to fit on an A4 size paper, please follow these steps:

  • Click on the File / Print command in the Touch menu board.
  • Select a printer in the appearing dialog window.
  • Set the paper size.
  • Choose the Scale to fit option in the Scale factor settings area.

Printing in a scaling different than the "Scale to fit" option can also result in a drawing that is larger than the available paper size of your printer on the other hand.
