Print legible plans on a small format printer
|Top Previous Next|
If you only have access to a standard format (e.g. A4 or letter) printer it can be difficult to print a legible floor plan for lots of guests on a single sheet. Here are some suggestions:
•Print each table on a separate page from the Table Plan pane.
•Set the Floor Plan pane to display seat numbers, instead of names, by selecting Seat number from the Display drop-down. Set the Table Chart pane to display seat numbers as well as names. Print out both Floor plan and Table Chart panes. The floor plan can then be cross-referenced against the table chart.
•Select Name only (radial) or Name only (banquet) from the Seats drop-down list at the top of the Floor Plan pane.
•Move the tables closer together in the Floor Plan pane. This will make them appear bigger when scaled to fit the page (but may stop the floor plan being to scale).
•Increase the size of the fonts in the Floor Plan pane by clicking on the button. The size of table and seat fonts can be set separately. If the name of a guest can't be fitted into the space available in the Floor Plan or Table Plan pane, the font will automatically be scaled smaller for that name to try to make it fit.
•Shorten the names displayed in the Floor Plan pane, e.g. by selecting F. Last. from the Guests drop-down list at the top of the pane. This will allow you to increase the font size.
•Export the floor plan as a PDF and send it to someone with a larger format (e.g. A3 or A2) printer.
•Order a digital poster print from one of our partners.
