11.6.4 What Gets Printed

   

NExS provides three methods for specifying what to print: default print range, print range specification (in the Printer Options dialog box), and explicit selection. Explicit selection takes precedence over the other two methods.

If you select a range whose cell entries overflow out of the selected range, NExS does not print the overflow portion.

When multiple pages are printed which are wider than the specified width of the page, the print order is left-to-right then down. If you select page footer to be printer, each physical segment is identified with the second page number qualifier (e.g. Page 1-0, Page 1-1, etc.)

Default Print Range

 

If a range was not explicitly selected and no Print Area is specified when you initiate the Print operation, NExS selects and prints the used portion of the spreadsheet.

Print Range Specification

 

The Print Area option allows you to specify a print area as a range of cells which is stored with the sheet. This is useful for spreadsheets that contain ``work areas'' that you do not want to include on the printout. If you have explicitly selected a range to print, the selected range takes precedence over the Print Area specification.

To specify or change the print range:

  1. Select Printer Options from the Options menu or Print Sheet dialog box. NExS displays the Printer Options dialog box as shown in Figure 11.2.

  2. Specify the default range of cells to be printed in the Print Area entry box.

  3. Apply your selection by clicking OK or Apply.

Explicit Selection

 

Any cells which are explicitly selected when the Print operation is initiated will be printed, overriding any other method of specification.
