  3. If you want to separate a large page during printing, select Separate large pages. When you print a report with a report page size which is larger than the print paper size, the report will be printed in multiple pages serially. That is, Logi Report will automatically separate a large page of a report.
  4. Select the Apply button to save the changes, and then select the OK button to close the dialog.
