Chapter 18. Printing > Preflight and Print Preview

Preflight and Print Preview

CorelDraw has two features that will help you determine if the printout will turn out as you expect—before committing it to paper or sending it to a service bureau. First, you can open the Preflight tab of the Print dialog box to view problems with the printout. Second, using the Print Preview feature, you can see exactly what the printout will look like. If you want to print a proof of a drawing but it is larger than the page or very small, you can scale the drawing in the Print Preview window.

To perform a preflight check:

1.
When you open the Print dialog box, CorelDraw automatically does a preflight check on the current document. If there are problems, they are noted on the Preflight tab (Figure 18.15).

Figure 18.15. CorelDraw continuously performs preflight checks as you set print options.


2.
To view preflight problems (Figure 18.16), click the Preflight tab.

Figure 18.16. Select a listed problem for a detailed explanation, as well as suggestions for correcting it.


3.
To see an explanation of a problem (along with suggested solutions), select a problem in the top part of the dialog box.
