Custom Scaling Bug using ExportAll in Rhino 6.35 for Mac

Hi McNeel,

Ran into a strange bug in the office today using the ‘ExportAll’ or ‘Export’ command to save PDF’s from Rhino 6 for Mac - it seems that setting a custom scale doesn’t effect the PDF result.

Steps to Reproduce;

  1. Draw anything
  2. Run ‘ExportAll’ and save as a PDF
  3. Set the Scale to ‘Custom’ and attempt to set a scale like 1:300. Neither the preview nor the export reflect this scale.

At 1:300;

At 1:900;

The obligatory data;
