## How to print at 1/4 inch = 1 foot scale?

 The Architectural scale options are not standard.  How can I print at 1/4 inch = 1 foot?

 You can use the support of a converter: for example https://www.rapidtables.com/convert/length/feet-to-inch.html12 in = 1 ft so 1 ft = 48 * 1/4 in. So you scale is 1/48. Make sure the Tool Option bar is active and enter the scale 1/48 as shown. Fabrice French hobbyist interested in 2D design.

 Thank you! It was not obvious that user-created scales could be entered, and none of the scales in the pull down list make any sense when using “architectural” units.On Sun, Jun 30, 2019 at 1:53 AM fa201 [via LibreCAD] <[hidden email]> wrote: You can use the support of a converter: for example https://www.rapidtables.com/convert/length/feet-to-inch.html12 in = 1 ft so 1 ft = 48 * 1/4 in.

 I take that back.  It didn't work.  I'm printing to letter size paper. When I preview it automatically scales to fit the page (something like 1:65.1234).  When I enter 1:48 and click the Fix box, nothing changes.  Actually, 1:48 should make the drawing too big for the paper.  I've probably overlooked something.  What?
