Go Up to Using ER/Studio Data Architect

From ER/Studio Data Architect, you can print your data models in monochrome or color to distribute to your reviewers. You can use the Print dialog box to set specific print parameters such as, printing specific sections of your diagram, diagram appearance, page range, zoom level, and border specifications. The Print dialog also has navigational tools that let you navigate your diagram to select the print area. You can save your print settings to reuse at a later time.

  • Before printing your model, display the page boundaries in the Data Model Window so you can optimally place your objects for better viewing and printing. Choose Tools > Options > Display > Page Boundaries.

Print the data model

  1. In the Data Model Explorer, select the physical or logical model, or the submodel that you want to print.
  2. Choose File > Print.
  3. Choose the options desired in the Print dialog and then click OK.
  4. To enable reviewers who do not have access to ER/Studio Data Architect to view your models, in addition to printing the model you can also create an XML Schema, save the model and distribute it with ER/Studio Data Architect Viewer, create RTF and HTML reports about the model, export the model to another format to be opened in a different application, or create an image of the model.
