The Print dialog box, the Print Options page of the VI Properties dialog box, and the Printing page of the Options dialog box contain similar options. Use the Print dialog box and the VI Properties dialog box to set printing options for the current VI. Use the Printing page of the Options dialog box to set printing options for all VIs.

Complete the following steps to set printing options for the current VI.

  1. Select File»VI Properties to display the VI Properties dialog box.
  2. Select Print Options from the Category pull-down menu.
  3. Select the appropriate printing options.
  4. Click the OK button.

When you print VI documentation using the Print dialog box, LabVIEW uses the options in the Print dialog box to set the printing options for the current VI. For example, if you place a checkmark in the Surround panel with border checkbox on the Printer page of the Print dialog box and you print the VI documentation, a checkmark also appears in the Surround front panel with border checkbox on the Print Options page of the VI Properties dialog box.

If the operating system has a print dialog box, certain options you set in that dialog box also set printing options for the current VI. For example, if you change the page orientation (portrait or landscape) in the operating system print dialog box, LabVIEW also sets the page orientation for the VI.
