Can I export my Punch plans to PDF?
You can convert your Punch floor plans to PDF documents. The first step: you need to get a PDF writer software. 

Browse the web with the keywords “free PDF” --> you will find several free programs --> check the compatibility between the software and your OS (XP, Win7, etc.) --> download and install the program.  

Once the software is installed, the new program will create a virtual printer (as shown below). 

Open you Punch program and your Punch plan --> File--> Print to Scale (or Print to Fit Page) --> the Print menu will open --> select your virtual printer (called PDF writer in the image below).  

Usually, the PDF writers have different paper sizes (A3, A1, etc.) so, you can choose the right paper size to fit your drawing.  

You can also print to PDF the LiveView images, however, not all PDF writers print the flat views.

- The background images used on this page are not royalty-free. Please use images from your own collection.  
 
- The page SAMPLE is a "hidden" page that contains sets of elements grouped into "sections": Title + photo, Icons + text, text + icons + video, etc...  
 
Select the section that best fits the design desired and copy/paste it onto your page (to “paste” in a specific location, right-click and choose Paste). Be sure to take the entirety of the section by selecting its external container (the one containing the background image or color). 
 
- Important: each "section" must have one, and only one, inner container (element group) for the section content. The outer margins of this sub-container set minimum distances from section boundaries.
 
- The "Horizontal" button in the "Selection" menu controls the automatic centering of an element. 

- To change the order of elements - i.e. place an element below another in a "relative" positioned container (like most of the content in the sections), use the Element Explorer on the left: green "arrow buttons" will appear when it is possible to change the order. Icons under an element and above the element group allow to put elements onto the same "line" and modify alignment.
 
- The entire header menu can be modified in its dedicated Layer (e.g. "Base_MenuRetractable"; simply change the page’s Layer to use a different menu). Use this to modify menu links (by copy/pasting existing links), change the colors etc. Note that these elements are pre-programmed to work with one another, so try to avoid “dragging” new ones on that could disrupt the general responsive behavior of the menu (favor using copy & paste).
