When you print preview from LTspice schematics the program automatically adds path/directory of the file to the bottom of the pdf.

Not really a question directly related to an electrical engineering topic but I thought someone might have information about this. I've been searching to disable it but couldn't find a way. I don't even know whether it is possible to disable this.

Basically if you are using LTspice open one of your schematic go to File and select Print Preview and look at the bottom, it will show where your file is on the pdf. Can we disable this so that we don't reveal the directory?

  • \$\begingroup\$ Must be able to because the directory doesn't appear on my own print previews. Just checked it. But it was on a schematic that I had NOT saved, yet. So that may be a clue. If you don't want the directory, just copy the entire thing onto a newly created page and print that out, I suppose. \$\endgroup\$ – jonk Mar 31 '18 at 18:47
  • \$\begingroup\$ It does not appear? Seriously? Which version are you using? XVII or IV? \$\endgroup\$ – pnatk Mar 31 '18 at 18:58
  • \$\begingroup\$ Yeah. Just create a new schematic page (DraftX). Don't save it. Just create it. Open your schematic you want to print. Use the copy feature and copy EVERYTHING on that schematic into the paste buffer. Move to your draft page. Paste your schematic there. Print preview, then. I think you will see what I see. \$\endgroup\$ – jonk Mar 31 '18 at 19:10

    \$\begingroup\$ I found the trick. If you click "Zoom to full extends" and then proceed it appears. But if you right after "Zoom to full extends" left click the mouse on the schematics anywhere and move the schematics even the smallest distance it doesn't appear. \$\endgroup\$ – pnatk Mar 31 '18 at 19:48
