Customizing Your Worksheet
From the Document tab, you can change default settings for any of the following items to suit your requirements:
Use the options in the Page group to customize settings for the printed worksheet:
Page Size—Sets the print page size to Letter, Legal, A3, A4, and so on.
Page Orientation—Sets the page orientation to Portrait or Landscape.
Margins—Sets the margin type to Standard, Narrow, Wide, or Legacy.
You can also select Custom Margins and independently set each of the four margins on a page:
When you set a custom margin, Last Custom Setting appears at the top of the list of margin types. This option saves the last custom settings that you applied to any of the open worksheets, and only applies to the current session of PTC Mathcad Prime.
If you open a second worksheet and apply another set of custom margins, then Custom is added to the bottom of the list of margin types. This option displays the custom settings of the active worksheet.
You can select a different type of margin for each worksheet in your PTC Mathcad Prime session.

Grid Size—Sets the grid size to Standard or Fine.
