    PDF Scaling

    Mick Dahl

      The problem i am having is when i "save as" PDF i am losing the scale of the drawing when i print the drawing from the created pdf file

       

      I can print directly from SW and the scaling is perfect .

       

      Could this be a Bug in SW ?

       

      Any thoughts would be great

          Hi Mick,

          Welcome to the forum.

          I can't tell you how many times I have seen issues (all kinds)

          when you save to pdf.  Try Printing to pdf instead.  This method seems to be

          a lot more stable.

            You mean the whole drawing is not printed to scale? This could simply be print settings in your PDF viewer. If you are using Adobe Reader, for example, it usually defaults to "Fit To Printable Area" in the Page Scaling option. Make sure it is set to "None", or whatever the 100% scale option is in your viewer.
