If you'd like to quickly export a single sheet, you can do this directly by selecting the export icon in the top right of the screen. To print one page per calculation, select 'Summary' print mode.
Group all your calculations in one project and give your project a name and address - this will be printed out as your headers when you export your calculations, making it easy to refer to.
You can also organize your calculations sheets in the order of your requirement as well as add your organization's logo to your project so that when you export your calculations, the whole deliverables are ready to go to your local building permit's department!
