When I print my plans, there is what appears to be a border that prints with it, the plan is not centered, and it does not fill the whole page.


There is a terrain perimeter created by default that is on some plans that you start in Home Designer products.

To remove the terrain perimeter

  1. Zoom Out and away from your plan so that you can see the entire "border."

  2. Click on the line that defines the terrain perimeter to select it.

  3. Delete the border by selecting the Delete edit tool or by pressing the Delete key on your keyboard.

  4. Select Window> Fill Window to fill the screen.

  5. Select File> Print> Print Preview foran on-screen representation of how the current view will appear when printed. Print Preview is only available in floor plan view.

    • The printer page displays as a solid white rectangle, and blue lines along the edges of the printer page indicate the edges of the printable area, as defined by the currently selected printer.

    • Objects such as camera symbols that do not print do not display in Print Preview .Text and dimension objects appear on-screen as they will on the printed page.

  6. Select File> Print> Center Sheet to center the printer page on the drawing.

    • This moves the printer page relative to the drawing, but does not affect the coordinates of objects in the drawing.

    • The location of the printer page is independent for each floor of the model.

  7. Finally, Print the plan again.
