Using the Print command under the File menu will bring up the Print dialog, which lets you decide how to print your diagram.
Most drawings will extend across multiple pages. The shape and size of these pages are determined by the Page Setup selections such as the size of the printed page and its orientation and whether you're using scale.
Printing Multiple Page Drawings
SmartDraw does not normally print the entire 50x50 inch drawing area. It prints only the rectangular array of pages that the drawing actually touches. If your drawing lies completely within one page, only that page is printed. If your drawing extends across a page boundary, it is printed on two or more pages.
To see where your page boundaries are on your drawing, go to the Page tab and select to show "Page Dividers".
This will show faint purple dashed lines across your drawing showing you where pages cut off.
In the example below our house plan lies across 4 pages given our current print settings.
The top-left page of the array of pages that contain the drawing is printed as page 1. The remaining pages are then printed, starting with the page to the right of page 1, and proceeding from top left to bottom right across each row.
The current settings use our 1/4" = 1' scale printed to an 11 x 8.5" paper in landscape format.
If we change nothing else, but the paper size to a larger format 22" x 17" paper, suddenly our diagram fits on one page and our page dividers disappear in our drawing area.
Now, if all we change is the orientation of our paper from landscape to portrait, the same diagram now spans across 6 pages.
If we adjust our scale from 1/4" to 1/16" inch the drawing goes from 4 pages to 1 page.
Every setting in the print dialog is a lever you can use to get the print result you need. You have to determine what's the most important to you.
If your goal is to print this diagram on a single page, choose "Print on One Page" from the drop down. You can still adjust your page size and page orientation but your scale will be reset to whatever it needs to be to make the drawing fit the size and orientation of the page you selected.

If your goal is print this diagram to a very specific scale, you'll want to select "Fit to Scale" and choose the scale you need. Read our article about printing to scale.
Print All Pages
Since this article is all about documents with multiple pages, we wanted to mention the "print all pages" option on your print dialog. This doesn't actually refer to the the pages that your diagram is broken into to fit on a physical sheet of paper. Those will all be printed no matter what that setting shows. The "Print All Pages" option refers to page tabs created in SmartDraw. Let's say you had a house plan on one page and added an electrical plan and a landscape plan on two separate pages. Checking the box to "print all pages" will include those pages in your PDF.
