Selecting which part of the view to print

In the print dialog you can choose to:

These options are available for all views that can be zoomed in and out. In figure 5.2 is a view of a circular sequence which is zoomed in so that you can only see a part of it.

When selecting Print visible area, your print will reflect the part of the sequence that is visible in the view. The result from printing the view from figure 5.2 and choosing Print visible area can be seen in figure 5.3.

On the other hand, if you select Print whole view, you will get a result that looks like figure 5.4. This means that you also print the part of the sequence which is not visible when you have zoomed in.
