With EdrawMax, you can easily modify how the page would look. In simpler words, page layout allows the placing and arranging of texts, graphics, and other connectors on EdrawMax’s documents.
In the latest version of EdrawMax (V12.6.0), navigate to the Design option in the top toolbar from where you can find Page Setup.
This Page Setup has different options:
Auto Size: By selecting this option, you can automatically resize the document as you draw.
Fit to Drawing: Fit to Drawing is an easy-to-go option that lets you fit the page’s size to what you have already created on the canvas. It will automatically remove the unused canvas space to make your diagram look more prominent.
Orientation: EdrawMax provides you with two orientation options: Portrait and Landscape.
Page Size: From Page Size, you can choose different page sizes, like A3, A4, A5, and B5 Sheets, Letters, Envelope, and more.
Jump Style: Use Jump Style when you have multiple connectors that are intersecting each other. When you use the Jump Style option, it ensures that it becomes easier to read which connector links with which diagram’s element.
Note: The Jump Style only works when you have two or more connectors intersecting with each other.
Unit: With the Unit option, you can make changes to the page’s unit. Click on Unit and select the desired one from the drop-down menu.
Note: The document’s ruler will automatically get updated as per the selected unit.
