Creating a Map Layout from Start to Finish - Using Print Preview

Primary tabs

As you move through the cartographic process, it’s important to check your work along the way. Using the Print Preview option will show you what your final map will look like after printing or exporting. Looking at a preview of your map often will show you where things fall outside of the print margin, allowing you to fix it before cascading error becomes a problem.

To use Print Preview:

  1. From the File menu, choose Print Preview
  2. In the resulting menu, zoom in and out as necessary
  3. Click the “Close” button to return to ArcMap layout view
