Creating a PDF of the Map

Previous topic Next topic  

The Create PDF of Map tool is used to generate a PDF with a legend of what is currently displayed onscreen. Begin by navigating to the part of your farm you want to show on the PDF. See Map Navigation for more information. Everything on screen including that covered by the Layers sidebar will be included in the PDF. Use SM_SidebarToggle1 or SM_SidebarToggle2  to collapse the Layers sidebar. Select the layers you want to show in the PDF and make sure they load fully. If you do not wait, the PDF may come out fuzzier that you would like. Note: The map on the PDF will be scaled to a 5:3 ratio (width:height). If the image on your PDF appears stretched, try changing the ratio of the window when you make the PDF.

SM_CreatePDF1

 

Next click the Create PDF of Map button. This will open a dialog box where you can enter the title and set other options. For more information about PDF options click PDF Options.

For Firefox:

If you would like print the PDF you can do so through your browser by pressing Ctrl + P, by clicking print in your browsers menu, or by clicking the print icon in your browsers PDF control panel. If you would like to save the PDF follow the instructions here, Saving a PDF.
