If you want to refer to your vegetable garden plans in your garden or allotment. You have two choices: Take your mobile / cellular phone with you to the plot and use that to view your Vegplotter plot. Or another approach is print out a copy. This guide talks through how to print out an image of your VegPlotter garden plan.
VegPlotter allows you to print an image of the your full garden plot, or print only a section.
Step 1 - Set the whether you want to print the full plot or only a section.
- Print full garden plot - VegPlotter will print the full plot when you either; have zoomed all the way out, or when you first load the plot (refresh the page in your browser [hit f5 etc] to reload)
- Print only a section - To print only a section, zoom and move to the section you what to print. VegPlotter will then only print what you see in the plot window.
Step 2 - Snapshot the plot
Next click the camera icon on the top right of the plot to take a snapshot. I've highlighted the button using a red circle in the screenshot below.
This will take a snapshot of the plot and display this in a popup window.
Step 3 - Print the snapshot
Click the printer icon to print the snapshot. Note: you can also download the image by clicking the down arrow icon next to the print icon.
Clicking the print icon will open your browser's print function / menu. Here you should be able to set whether to print the image on one page (fit to page etc) or on multiple. On some browsers you need to change the scale to print out the plot on one page. Below is an example of the print menu on Chrome. Here you need to open the [More settings menu] to change the scale. Change the scale to a percentage the brings the image to a size that fits on one page.
That's it. Now take your print out to your garden or allotment. Enjoy.
