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?
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.
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.
