Configure Print Template Properties

Print templates have properties that affect the template as a whole, like margin sizes, or that control preferences, like the units that Print Designer uses to display measurements.

Select the Print Template

Use any of the following methods to select the print template:

Properties of Print Templates

Name

To change the name that Print Designer uses for a print template, select the print template and configure the Design | Name setting in the Properties panel. The name appears in the Properties drop-down list.
