Method 1. Control A to select all, and then use the scaling tool to reduce the size.

Method 2. Set your material to 1200 x 5000 and load the file. Then change the material to 12 x 50 with the Scale design with job size box checked. Then scale to suit.

"IT WORKED"

What is the IT that worked? Mike's Method 1 or Method 2 or that there was a confusion between mm and inches?
