Sheet size increases when exporting from VW to PDF


In VW, my drawings are 30x42.  Same in page setup.  Same in print dialogue box.  When I export them from VW to pdf they float on the page with huge blank margins on the bottom and right side of the drawing.  Thoughts??

I can force this to happen if I go to Page Setup the click the Printer Setup... button. From the second Page Setup dialog box, on the Page Attributes settings I have a Scale at the bottom of the page. If I set that to 50%, then the drawing only fills the top/left 1/4 of the page.


There is also a second Scale setting. From the same dialog box choose Vectorworks from the dropdown at the top choose Vectorworks. If I set that to 50%, then I get a small version of the drawing in the center of the PDF page.


Let us know if this helps.
