printing to fit page

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to "print selection" or sheet in VW without tiling?

I need to run check-prints but none of my four printers have the "scale" selection that is shown in the manual.

My largest paper size is 22x17 and it is a great size for checking drawings.

Are you printing sizes larger than your paper size or are you going out to a print house? If so, I would suggest creating a new document with a workgroup reference. In your page setup you can select your printer and paper size, then under the "page" menu you can go to "set print area" and then in the sizes choose "one page." This will show you the exact area that will be printed. You can then scale the drawing in the reference down to fit the page and print it. The reference layer will require you to copy and paste into a new layer or unlocking the reference layer (this will update each time you open the file unless you set it to manual).

If the 22x17 paper is the largest you will be printing, then I would follow the same procedures above excluding the reference and scaling.

Perhaps others have another suggestion for you.
