Hi JFM,

I'm not entirely sure what you want to achieve.

If you want to:
- make a screenshot of the area: use a screenshot tool for it

- export a certain area to PNG: Select the objects that you would like to export (or create one, that covers the area that you want to export) and export to PNG

- print a certain area with your printer: Adjust the page size of the document to the size of the area of the drawing which you would like to print. This will be done most easily by creating an object that covers the area, selecting it, and then resizing page to content.

Hope any of these fit your needs,
 Kind Regards,
 Maren
