View Tab

Specifies options for printing views that contain sheets, such as the Gantt Chart and Resource Usage view.

  • Print All Sheet Columns: Select to print all columns of a sheet in the view. Clear this option to print only the visible columns. For example, your Gantt Chart might have only two visible Gantt table columns. If you select this option, all columns will be printed. If you clear this option, only the two visible columns will be printed. This option is available only for views with a timescale.
  • Print First (number) Columns On All Pages: Select to print a specified number of columns on all pages, where (number) equals the number of columns you want to print. This option is available only for views with a timescale.

Note 

If you have a project that prints on multiple pages both horizontally and vertically, the pages that encompass the left edge of the project will show the number of columns that are visible in the Gantt Chart, no matter what number is specified in Print First (number) Columns On All Pages. However, all other pages will show the number of columns you specify.

  • Print Notes: Select to print all task and resource notes. The notes are printed as a group after the view has been printed. This option is available only for views with a timescale.
