Re: LibreCAD for Building Survey projects

Tim Payne
Hi again dellus,

I have created the floor plan at 50 (current drawing preferences) so that the dimensions (5 mm figures & arrow heads) are legible at life size.

I increased this to 1 in General Scale in Drawing preferences, dimension details shrink to nothing

imported the A2 Drawing Template (1:50) and increased (modify scale) this by 50 to make it 1:1

Then... I selected the floor plan and positioned it within the Drawing template, then made the General Scale 50, so the dimensions became legible.

Selected print to pdf, but largest paper size is A3, so couldn't get the full drawing, but that is a limitation I will have to live with, I guess.

Thanks very much for your advice.

BR

Tim Payne.

These are the options (Print to PDF or XPS Document Printer) when I select: PDF; Print; Preferences; Advanced; Paper/Output - A3 being last option at the top of the drop down list - have I missed something?
