Printing Quickly

You can print the current view of a drawing to the printer that is set as the default output device in your operating system (OS).

The QuickPrint command is executed immediately without further prompting. It prints the current view of the graphics area, scaling it so that it is scaled to fit the default paper size, and the output is centered on the sheet.

Other settings and additional options that you can set when using the Print command (such as print styles and shaded view print options) are ignored.

To print the current view of the graphics area:

  • Type QuickPrint at the command prompt.

    The output to the default printer is launched immediately.


Command: QuickPrint
