     Yes, I'd like to have the option to change the diagram components. 
I'd also like the option to set the page size.  When I select a
plotter, the print diagram shows paper size, and I select ANSI E
(34"x44"), the page size is still 8.5x11(this isn't displayed
anywhere), so it still wants to print 24 pages!
