Ok, draw a box 1070mm wide x 374mm tall and try this !
I need to print to raster my object at full size. its 1070mm wide x 374mm tall
I choose 1:1 scale and the raster option.
window and set, I resize the window to encompass my object and it says alter scale yes no, I have it at 1:1 so no, the window jumps back to the A4 size.
There is no way that one can tell it to print to the size of the window at 1:1 scale, it should be that dragging the window alters the raster dimensions, user then decides on the pixels per inch.
I decide to alter print size to 150cm x 150cm 200dpi 1:1 window click set and I position this carefully over the object, there is a lot of space either side yet I hit enter and the object is part out of the preview window !!! hit set and its fully within.
wasted space and MB’s above and below so alter size to 180 x 80cm yet it still shows the previosu size when use set window.
get fed up and close the print dialog box. Then decide to have another go and open it and behold its now showing 180 x 80cm and set window shows this size.
However I want it a better fit, hit enter and back into dialog box,
I enter 110 x 40cm, the preview changes to letterbox but use windows set and I am still looking at the previous size, resizing the window prompts the change scale so hit enter and it has changed back to 150 x 80cm.
This Print facility needs a makeover. THIS IS NO GOOD AT ALL.
It shouldnt take 30 mins and still be putting up a fight.
I am getting nowhere, it wont let you dictate the size of the window.
Close it down.
Open it again and its now showing 110 x 40cm !
Definitely something wrong, and resizing the window should directly alter the print size.
You have to enter a width and height, then close the dialog window and open it again to see the changes , then you use window set to position the window.
Furthermore I get the result into photoshop and its massive, why, because I created it full size at 200dpi and its opene up as 72dpi, so I have to alter it to 200dpit with sampling off and keep proportions on.
