Cartographica has two ways to create printed output: Quick Printing and Map Layout printing.
As one might expect, Quick Printing provides a quick way to create printed output for use either on the screen or in a PDF. It's no-frills and represents exactly what is currently on the screen.
Map Layout is much more sophisticated printing mechanism which uses a Map Layout document to define the way that the map will look on the printed page. In exchange for the additional complexity, Map Layout provides a way to print more than one map on a page and to add adornments, such as legends, scale, north arrows and more.
Quick Printing is the easiest way to print a basic map. By choosing> 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> 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 Print window to save a PDF file. These files also pay attention to the settings.> and then using the menu in the
Quick-Printing the current map
With your map open, choose>
The standard Print window will come up with a preview area to the left.
Choose the image resolution from among the available options
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.
