Printing Scale

Post by jdpearson » Wed Sep 28, 2011 6:31 pm

It seems that when I attempt to print any of my sets without changing the scale (using the PDF), the minis do not fit on a page and are thus truncated. It looks like there just isn't enough margin left around the edges for either of my printers.

Of course, I can "shrink" to fit - but that messes with the scale. The other option is to use the PowerPoint files and move things around a little. This is what I'm doing now but is a bit of a pain.

Any suggestions? Anyone else notice this?

On way to work, so quick reply, but are you printing on US Letter paper?

Yes. Are they all designed for A4?

Being UK based, i do work in A4 size.

Either print always with "scale to fit" enabled, so that they are always on th epage, and all the same size,

or else use the powerpoint version and copy the figures into a new, letter-sized, page. Save and voila
