[Q] Paper size in FormZ Layout

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm struggling with printing at 100% from the FormZ layout application. The app insists on splitting up my drawing when printing at 100%.

This is my flow:

  1. I want to laserprint on A4 so I choose 'ISO A4' from the 'Standard Paper Size' drop down menu in the Layout Project Settings.
  2. But if in the print dialogue box I set 'Scale' to '100%', my drawing is split into two pages.
  3. On the other hand, if in the print dialogue box I set 'Scale' to '99%', my drawing prints on one page
  4. As a workaround, if I choose a 'Custom Paper Size' that is slightly smaller than A4 (say, 5mm less at 28.7x20.0) then I can use 100% and print on a single page.

Is this expected behaviour? I expected that I needed to choose the paper size of the printer in the 'Standard Paper Size' menu.

 

Regards,

 

Tom

Hi Pobo.

Try to print at 98-99% scale. Also even better idea is to print to PDF (Open PDF in Preview) at 98% and than crop it to desired size. and than print. Also you will have PDF which is good itself.

Anton.
