When I select File> Print> Print in my .plan file, the print scale is set at 1/4" = 1'.
I would like the scale to be something different - possibly 1/8" = 1'. How do I change the scale in the Print dialog when the field is not accessible?
If you have already sent a view to your .layout file at a specific scale, and are printing from that layout view, the Drawing Scale should remain at 1:1 scale.
If you want to print your layout file at a smaller scale for test printing, please see 'Printing a Scaled Check Plot' in the Related Articles section below.
These instructions work for printing either to a physical plotter, or to a PDF file.
When the Print dialog is opened, the Drawing Scale is already set and is displayed as a reference only. Using the procedure below, however, you can set the scale for the current print job, as well as future print jobs.
In Chief Architect X5 and prior, navigate to File> Print> Page Setup.
Notice that under the Scaling heading, the scale reflects what you set it as in the Drawing Sheet Setup dialog.
Make sure To Scale is the selected radio button when you go to print.
Using this procedure, you can easily adjust the Drawing Scale of a file whenever you need to.
