Printing to 100% scale

Postby drpeej » Mon Mar 04, 2019 9:43 pm

Is there any way to print a design so it is printed at 100% scale. Whenever I try it it is smaller that the actual size. I guess it may be scaling to paper size but I would like to print at true scale even if that means tiling or losing some of the image.

I can't see any way of doing it

Hey Randall,

I just went looking for that thread and in particular my contribution to it: https://forum.vectric.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=29061&p=209869&hilit=print+pdf#p209869

A bit vain of me, perhaps, but I still think it's a good way to go about it.

Thank you - it all seems a bit of a faff.

It strikes me that this would be a really useful feature

With the latest versions you have the option to export as PDF which you can print to exact scale using Acrobat or any other PDF program.
