To print your Org Chart,  Click on the ‘Print’  button on the toolbar . Depending on your org chart structure & size, you may need to choose a custom page size or adjust the Scale Percentage for it to fit. Please note that long or wide charts may not fit properly in the standard size A4 paper, so be sure to reduce the Scale in the Print dialog. You may also want to try” Landscape” orientation instead of the default “Portrait” for wide charts. Another way of ensuring that your chart is not too long or wide is to use the smallest node size & text possible. Node size & text can be adjusted easily from the toolbar.
