Set Ortelius Preferences

Preference settings affect how Ortelius behaves, and they apply to all of your Ortelius documents. HINT: Many preferences are set in your computer’s System Preferences. To open System Preferences, click the Apple menu in the top-left corner of your screen, then choose System Preferences.

Customize the Toolbar

The toolbar at the top of the Ortelius window gives you one-click access to many of the actions you’ll use when working with drawings. As you discover which controls you use most, you can add, remove, and rearrange toolbar buttons to suit your work style.

Customize Ortelius

As you use Ortelius, you’ll discover which controls you use most. For different drawings, you may have a preferred layout for sidebars. You may want to always use a specific drawing unit for new drawings. Ortelius lets you customize these settings and more to suit your work style. Some customized settings apply to individual drawings […]


Export your entire drawing as a single image or vector PDF drawing. Alternatively, export separate layers, slices of your drawing, or selected objects as individual files.

Save, Print and Export Documents

Ortelius uses Apple’s system to save with Autosave and Versions. Because Pages continually saves your work, you can browse earlier versions of any document, save copies of previous versions, and restore a document to an earlier version.
