Quick Printing is the easiest way to print a basic map. By choosing File > Print Cartographica will print a copy of the current map in as large a format as possible for whatever printer you are using. The larger the print area, the more well-defined the printout.
You can print different format maps by using the File > Page Setup command to set and change the size of the paper to use as the destination for the Map Layout.
PDF maps can be created by using File > Print and then using the PDF menu in the Print window to save a PDF file. These files also pay attention to the File > Page Setup settings.
Quick-Printing the current map

- If you want to print just the area that was visible in the map window, check Print Visible Extent Only
- Change any other printer settings and print as you normally would.
