Working with Pages
The drawing page (drawing page: The page in a drawing window that contains a drawing. Each page has a size, which usually corresponds to a standard paper size, and it has a scale.) is the white page you see on the screen. For many drawing types, your drawing page is set to the same size and orientation as your printer paper. You can resize the drawing page to be as large or as small as you want.
Setting the size of the drawing page
Set the size of the drawing page in the Page Setup dialog box.
If you resize the drawing page to be larger than the paper you print it on, the drawing will be clipped and printed. You can reduce a drawing when you print it to make it fit on one page.
Drawing page settings can differ from printed page settings
Changes you make to drawing page settings are not automatically reflected in printed page settings. Before you print, make sure that settings, such as orientation, are the same for both the drawing page and the printed page. For example, if you change the orientation of the drawing page to Landscape without changing the printed page settings from the default Portrait orientation, the drawing is printed on a portrait page, as shown in the following illustration.
You can check your drawing page and printer paper settings by using the Print Preview command or by looking at the preview in the Page Setup dialog box.
