Multi-page print preview limitation

I love AnyRail.  I like the fact that I can easily print layouts at 1:1 on multiple sheets of paper.  However, the multi-page print preview seems to be limited to a maximum of 3 x 3 sheets which makes it harder to determine which sheets to print if one only wants to print from a limited area of the layout. 

I am sure that when I started using the softare just over a year ago it allowed a larger matrix, up to maybe 6 x 6.  Is there any possiblity that this can be re-instated, or possibly allow a larger number, perhaps up to 10 x 10, or perhaps even allow an arbitrary number?

Of course, I am unaware of the difficulty in making such a change, and if there's a good reason why it is the way it is then I can live with it.

Thanks again.

Les.

If you first go to 'FILE/Print' and set a print scale (for instance 1:1), and the go the SHOW menu and tick 'Pages', AnyRail will draw a grid of the pages with numbers for that print scale.

In the print preview itself there is indeed a limit of 3x3 sheets.

Thank you, David. Just when I thought I had explored all of the features, another one pops up to surprise me. :)

That is very helpful.  A print preview greater than 3x3 would have been great, but I am very happy to learn about this alternative way of viewing the page layout. 

Thanks again,

Les.
