Scalability of .pdf output

Recommended Posts

We use Adobe Distiller to output .pdf files for email transfer. I just found out that the output prints incorrectly - about 5% too small. I can work around this by setting print setup scaling to 106%, but I wonder if you are aware of this problem, and if you know anything else to do about it.

I compared a printout directly from VectorWorks, which scales correctly, to a printout from the .pdf file using Adobe Acrobat. The Acrobat file was 5% too small in both directions.

VW 10.0.1

Make sure that the "Shrink oversized pages to paper size" option is toggled off in the printing settings of Acrobat Reader.

I think this is turned on by default.
