LibreCAD 2.1.3 - Paper-Scale Vs. Print paper output is not identical

Hans
Hello

I am using the following LibreCAD version:

Version: 2.1.3
Compiler: GNU GCC 4.9.1
Created on: Sep 23 2016
Qt version: 5.4.1
Boost Version: 1.60.0

I can adjust the scale - for example "1: 100, fixed"

- The menu "Print" does not work.

- Then I create a PDF via Export - "Export as PDF" (because the menu "Print" does not work)
=> The PDF is created, but not in the scale "1:100" (slightly reduced by a factor of about 0.97)

Why ?

Regards
Hans

Unfortunately printing directly from the file menu is yet to be fixed.
Try doing print preview and print from there.
This may not fix your scale issue but have a look here in the Wiki
https://wiki.librecad.org/index.php?title=Print_Guide 
Try this advice first and post back here if you have further problems.

What means "Print" does not work? Nothing happens at all? It happens at certain circumstances (maybe when the printer has been offline at a first try, but I'm not sure) that in the printer driver's dialog "Print to file" is ticked. Take this out.
Then again, when you try to print via a pdf, or also directly from LC, it may be that in your printer driver's dialog it is set to fit within the printable area, instead of strictly 1:1, this could explain the factor of 0.97.

Hello

Thank you for your answere.
Now, i recovered the Problem.

When I printed the PDF-File, the scale of the Printer was:

- Adaptation to side

instead of

- Actual size

Thak you !
