Printing, Formats and Sizes

Printing

You can print a visualization (model, diagram or presentation) from the Visual Designer or Content Viewer on Dragon1 by using the browsers printer (CTRL-P).

The browsers printer will look at the page format that is configured in the SVG data. The page format you have used, you can check in the page panel in the Inspector.

If you have created a visualization at A0 size, you can print it at A0 size, but also at A4, or the other way around. But for that your printer driver needs to have the option of scale to fit printer size. In Google Chrome often this option is not available. In that case: save the visualization as PDF and print it from your pdf viewer.

Printing in the Visual Designer

First select a visualization to print.

If you want to print your visualization at actual size, select zoom 100% in the playerbar. If you want to print only a portion you can zoom in

Click on Print in the mid top header to get a printer friendly version of your visualization.

Now press CTRL-P.

Printing in the Content Viewer

First select a visualization to print.

If you want to print your visualization at actual size, select zoom 100% in the playerbar. If you want to print only a portion you can zoom in.

Click on Print in the mid top header to get a printer friendly version of your visualization.

Now press CTRL-P.

Save as PDF

You can save a visualization from the Visual Designer or Content Viewer on Dragon1 by using the browsers printer (CTRL-P) and save it as PDF.

Formats

In the Visual Designer you can create a visualization at any size.

We have predefined the following sizes for you: A0, A1, A2, A3, A4, A5 and A6.

If you want a different size, you can enter the width and height in mm in the page panel of the Inspector.

Is Printing Size of Shapes incorrect?

If the size of your shapes is incorrect in the print view, this is because the size of your page is not configured correctly. To solve this problem, change the size of your Page back and forth in the Inspector and save your model, view or visualization.

Millimeters versus Pixels

On Dragon1 we use 2.6 as multiplier to convert millimeters into pixels.

So 10 mm is 26 pixels.

Page Sizes

The ISO Sizes for standard format are:

  • A0 - 1189mm x 841mm
  • A1 - 841mm x 594mm
  • A2 - 594mm x 420mm
  • A3 - 420mm x 297mm
  • A4 - 297mm x 210mm
  • A5 - 210mm x 148 mm
  • A6 - 148mm x 105 mm
