The Layout Editor’s Document band contains functions which help prepare the layout for presentation in printed form. From here the user can add headers and or footers to the layout as well as print it or save it as an image. This band also gives the user the option to automatically scale and rearrange images so that they fit neatly on individual pages.

Save As Image

Scale To Height

Clicking this icon rescales the currently selected image to fit the height of a single page. You can use this function with several images selected to rescale multiple figures simultaneously.

Scale To Page

Clicking this icon rescales the image as necessary so that it fits within both the height and width of a single page. You can use this function with several images selected to rescale multiple figures simultaneously.
