I’ve just tried this in RC3 and the problem is still there. To reproduce, set focus on the top view in the previously supplied example, select print and in the dialogue choose a physical printer, A4 paper, landscape, and set the scale to 1:25. The preview image should fit nicely on an A4 page in landscape. Then print. The reality does not match the preview!
Thanks for the dujour build. I have done some testing on it. In this release the image will scale to 1:25 and, given the right circumstances, be well placed. However, unfortunately there is more to be done.
Issue 1 - Changing scale can break placement:
Printing defaults to ‘Scaled To Fit’. I then change to a standard scale (1:25). The image is well-placed if I have the drawing at zoom extents in the viewport. If not, then the placement is off. Contrast these two previews:
Issue 3 - Mixed units:
I am using a millimeter small template and A4 paper. All dimensions in the print preview are expressed in millimeters except for the ‘On Paper’ size which relentlessly defaults to inches (see above). This should also be in millimeters.
Issue 4 - Forgotten scale:
If you open a saved drawing the print preview shows the last used printer, but does not recall the last used scale, reverting to ‘Scaled to Fit’. I don’t know if this is by design or a bug, but it would be much more useful when quickly reprinting documents if the last used scale was remembered.
