When you print from Layout the top line which is the name of the Destination you need to select Chief Architect Save as PDF for best results. See attached

Ok thank you for the graphic. Helps a lot. So even though I’m not printing from my computer this will work? I want to email it to someone else who has the large printer.

Yes, printing to a pdf is going to save a file that you can share with them.

Yes there is for sure. Overwhelming amounts of info I’ve noticed.  But time is money. If there’s a community to help then I’m all for that.
