Marking a topic or group of topics for printing

On the File Menu, click Mark Topic For Printing.... This displays the Mark Topic for Printing dialog.


Overview

The Mark for Print feature allows you to "mark" or select a topic or group of topics for printing. The marked topics are stored in the Marked Topics list shown in the Mark Topic for Printing dialog. Once topics are in the list, they can be printed en masse. This feature allows you to easily collect topics for printing as you are browsing, and also to print all (or some) topics of a certain type, for example CAD or CLD sheets, BATCH files, or topics with annotations, without having to view and select each topic individually.
