Re: 2 Ques. - object placement; printing

Hi Mike,

Thanks for the reply.

Actually, I've been copy/pasting the page I want to print into an empty dia file and printing that.... works as a stop gap measure but bothersome.

I do use Inkscape and Gimp for other things. And I don't use Windows :)

I have less heartache if I just make screen dumps and print using an image
management program.  I have a very old demo of one called LViewPro that I
like a lot for down and dirty image manipulation and printing.

However, you need to use a color for the page breaks that contrasts with
your background color.  Then the grid you see represents the area inside the
margins.  No WYSIWYG.  If you go over the lines you are causing another
sheet to be used.   I have no idea if you can limit printing to only one of
several sheets, which is what you asked for.

Open source image programs I like are Inkscape and Gimp.  Both are superb.
Printing can be a little uncertain with open source and Windows OS machines
in my experience, hence the screen dump habit.

The more I work with dia the more I like it.

But I have two questions:

1) Precise object placement with the mouse is very difficult. Is there any
way to "nudge" objects a pixel at a time via the keyboard?

2) Sometimes I would like to print only one page of a multi-page diagram.
Is there any way to do this?
