a printer. Some printer drivers also support this option from the
printer setup dialog box accessible with the :hp2.Set printer:ehp2.
option. You may choose either method. Some printer drivers (e.g. Postscript)
will not overwrite a file if you use the second method.

indicated. You can change this by selecting the :hp2.Set Page:ehp2. button.
You can then adjust the area with the mouse, and click on button 1

plot area, either in centimeters or relative to the page size. 
:p.If you wish to adjust the default behaviour of the printer,
choose the :hp2.Job properties:ehp2. option. This will bring up your
printer setup dialog box. This is part of the printer driver, and the 
features you can adjust will depend on your printer. You can generally
use this to swich between landscape and portrait mode, for instance.
Note that some drivers might not have any options.
