Phil, see my reply to Kathy as well for options to ‘print’ charts as
pdf-files with CutePDF (http://www.cutepdf.com, freeware) or PDF955
(http://www.pdf995.com, adware). Both pdf-creators use paper-sizes in
their setups so when you use A4 or Letter, it will probably produce a
pdf with several pages. However, you can also define a "Postscript
Custom Page"-size and adapt it to print the chart as one page.
After you've created the chart in Genbox, right-click on it to get the
width- and heigth-properties of the chart. Make a note of that (or click
on the pin in headerbar to let the dialog stick) and go to Print Setup.
select the PDF-writer you've installed as printer;
click on Printer-properties;
click on Advanced in the next dialog;
Select "PostScript Custom Page" as paper;
Click on the Edit Custom Page Size and enter the sizeproperties of the
chart (make sure you use the same measurements: in or mm);
Close the several dialogs (make sure the page is set to portrait)
Print the chart and follow the directions.
