Printing Options
sets options for printing a notebook. Mathematica saves these settings with the notebook.
  • The following settings may be specified via the Printing Options dialog:
Print cell bracketsprint cell brackets
Print registration marksindicate printed page corners with trim marks
Print multiple pages for wide cellsprint the necessary pages to show wide cells
Margins in Inchesdetermine white space on page after printing
  • Trim marks are useful for visualizing how a notebook would look when printed on paper of a particular size. You can simulate a smaller page size by changing the value of the option "PageSize".
  • Text that is set to word wrap will wrap to the printing margin width, not the window width.
