How to get prints from DXF file ?

pink5
Today i got drawings for a project as DXF files, so i installed LibreCad to be able to open and print the files. I tried both print and export to PDF but i only got some micro versions of the drawings. How can i get it printed or exported to PDF in correct scale?

Via Print Preview and stay in that mode while printing / exporting.

What are the drawing's units? Paper size? Is the printer driver set to 1:1 or fit to page?
If you can't solve it it's best to provide sample file here.

Thanks for the quick reply.  I discovered that the problem came from the
print settings of the PDF viewer: by setting it correctly, the drawing
is printed keeping the correct scale (with drawing units in cm, A4
format, setting 1: 1).  Thanks.  I still have a problem with multiple
selection of objects to change their properties: is there the
possibility to do this or should you proceed by selecting one object at
a time to change its properties?  Sincerely.  Fulvio

Some properties can be changed for several objects at one go with Attributes instead. Pull up a window around them or click them individually and close the selection with Enter.

Has Rumpenstunchen something to do with Rumpelstilzchen?
