Printing and Plotting

Printing and plotting with ViewCompanion

ViewCompanion provides many different printing options. These options include scaled printing, batch printing, n-up printing and poster mode printing. You may apply custom watermark, banner, header and footer to your printed document.

Click to see bigger image Both header and footer text are fully customizable, and you can include information as user name, date, time, filename, page and the scale used for printing. Each header and footer can have up to 3 text lines. For watermark, or banner, you have full control of text content, rotation, font and color. You can decide whether the watermark should displayed below, or on top of the drawing.
An external image file, for example a JPEG file, may be used as a watermark instead of text.

The picture to the right shows the full print preview of a drawing in ViewCompanion. In this preview you can see a watermark with the text "Uncontrolled Copy", as well as a header and footer with additional information. Click on the image for a larger view.

Poster Printing
The poster mode is particularly useful if you need to print large format drawings in full size on an ordinary printer with for example A4 or Letter sized paper. By using the poster mode a large format drawing may be printed in full size on several smaller sheets.

N-Up Printing
Click to see bigger image ViewCompanion supports n-up printing (for example 2-up, 4-up, etc.). N-up printing, also known as multiple pages per sheet printing, allows you to print two or more pages on the same sheet of paper. The picture to the right shows print preview of 4-up printing a multipage PDF file. Click on the picture for larger view.

ViewCompanion can print your files to any plotter and printer device supported by Windows, in both color and monochrome (black & white) modes.
