Each level of the diagram on a separate page, and when necessary, reduce diagram text so the level fits on a single page

Activate Fit to Page. Because Embed prints each level with the minimal reduction possible, the levels of a multi-level diagram may be sized differently.

Embed may not be able to print extremely large diagrams when Fit to Page is activate. In these cases, Embed gives you the opportunity to abort the print operation. If you choose to continue printing, Embed prints as much of the diagram as will fit on the page.

What is currently displayed on the screen

Activate Print Current View. Embed prints what you see on the screen, starting at what is in upper left corner of the screen.

Each level using as many pages as necessary to print it without resizing

Activate Tile Pages. The margin settings are honored for each page.

A version of the diagram to a file to be printed later or to be used in another program

Activate Print to File and then click OK, or press ENTER. In the ensuing dialog box, specify a name for the diagram you want to print.
