Opens the print dialogue of your operating system's default printer to print the current map view as is.
If you would like to customize your print use the Layout view.

When starting a print job, Orbit will generate a map view as specified by your printer settings. This may result in large dataset request and large print file to be sent. Make sure your hardware and network is capable to handle the print job, see Printing conditions.

Printer manufacturers may advise on the hardware configurations on how to optimize a print job. Orbit will behave accordingly.
