Good day to all,
I am new here and my name is Harald Zimmermann.
LibreCAD version: 188.8.131.52
Compiler: GNU GCC 13.1.0
Created on: Jul 29 2023
Qt version: 5.12.11
Boost version: 1.75.0
System: Windows 10 (10.0)
I am using LibreCAD to map the growing beds in my field. That means I have dimensions that currently cover about 32 meters.
Something about the scales I don't seem to have gotten right yet. In dimensioning, I would like to have meters displayed, but cm are displayed.
In the print preview everything is displayed, but with the scale in the print preview I can't influence the size of the printout.
The print preview is also not completely transferred to the Pdf file, the outer dimensions are not printed.
What do I have to change so that the print preview is printed completely?
And how can I cause meters to be displayed instead of cm?
I would have liked to attach the dxf file, but only pixel formats can be uploaded, hmm?
Displaying meters: Units are set in Options - Current Drawing Preferences - Units. If you change from mm to m you have to scale down the drawing by factor 0.001. It doesn't happen automatically. Or draw in m from the beginning.
You do influence the scale of the printout in Print Preview. But you also have to consider the size of the printing paper. Also set in Options - Current Drawing Preferences.
If you tell me the intended print format and scale I can provide a sample file.
You should be able to upload a dxf file with More v - Upload a file.
