A quick & easy way to print 1/2 sized SCALED Drawing sets


From time to time it is handy to produce a plan set on Ledger sized paper. I've done it several ways: a duplicate file that's resized,   a duplicate set of sheets,   a class that reads "NOT TO SCALE" in grey turned on and just printed. As is well know an ARCH D piece of paper isn't a 50% reduction when output to Tabloid (I think 45% is close). 


My wish is to have an output choice "Print Sheets to Fit - at Scale". this would save a boatload of time and effort and avoid contractors & clients pointing out that a set of drawings does not have the correct scale called out.

Yeah, thanks, no.

This is one option I was alluding to where I turn on a class that has a "NOT TO SCALE" note. 

As mentioned in the title, I would like to print a half size set At Scale.

Also from my experience an ARCH D drawing doesn't fit on a Tabloid page unless it's reduced to 50%.
