Icon and shortcut
The Print command opens the Print dialog box, in which you can select printing options for printing the currently active document.
Clicking the Print command in Grid View opens a Print options dialog (screenshot below), which enables you to set printing options for the XML document. Clicking Print in this dialog takes you to the Print dialog for printer options.
The available options for Grid View printing are described below:
•In the Types pane, you select the items you wish to have appear in the output.
•For the What option, you specify whether the current selection or the entire file is to be printed.
•The Expand option allows you to print the document as is, or with all descendant elements expanded fully.
•The Contents option enables you to choose between printing contents of all nodes or printing node names only.
•In the If Contents Are Wider Than Page pane, you select what to do if contents are wider than the page. The Split Pages option prints the entire document at normal size, splitting contents over pages both horizontally and vertically. The pages could then be glued together to form a poster. The First Page option prints only the first, left-hand page of the print area. The area that overflows horizontally is not printed. This option is useful if most of the important information in your Grid View of the document is contained on the left side. The Shrink Horizontally option reduces the size of the output (proportionally) until it fits horizontally on the page; the document may run on for several pages. The Shrink Both option shrinks the document in both directions until it fits exactly on one sheet.
•The Print button prints the document with the selected options.
•The Preview button opens a print preview window that lets you view the final output before committing it to paper.
•The Print Setup button opens the Print Setup dialog box and allows you to adjust the paper format, orientation, and other printer options for this print job only. Also see the Print Setup command.
|Note:||You can change column widths in Grid View to optimize the print output.|
If you have a purchased license, you can turn off the program logo, copyright notice, and registration details when printing a document from XMLSpy. This option is available in the View section of the Options dialog.
