Hello, I'm having a problem printing plans. The prints are very fine and the plans are barely legible. I can't find the setting to make the graphics bigger.
My printer is a Brother laser DCP9020-CDW. It works very well with other software.
Have you made the drawing yourself? Is the linewidth 0? Maybe as a property of the layer? Do you print just via File - Print or via Print Preview? How does it look in Print Preview? On what paper size, in what scale? More information is needed. You may provide a sample file.
Did you do the drawing yourself?
Is the line width 0?
Maybe as a layer property? Do you print only via File - Print or via Print preview? What does it look like in the print preview?
I tried from file / print and from the preview icon and print icon, same for all.
On what paper size,
on what scale?
I can't find the print scale
More information is needed. You can provide a sample file.
You can post a file via "More v" "Upload a file". Don't miss to press "Upload file" after choosing it.
A standard line width for a normal line is 0.25 mm. Lines showing cut massive objects like walls maybe 0.5 mm. Or alternatively give them a fill color.
You can define the line width as a property of the layer, but you also can assign it individually as pen property other than "By Layer", while drawing or afterwards with the "Properties" (single entity) or "Attributes" (several entities possible) command.
The first is mostly left as is, just set most lines to 0.25 mm as standard, to start with, and put a grey fill into the walls.
In the second I made the walls' outline 0.50 mm thick. I also changed the settings in Options - Current Drawing Preferences - Dimensions according to a intended print scale of 1:100. This makes it easier to switch to a different scale later.
Number three is tuned to a 1:50 scale, and with a hatch instead of a fill for the walls.
When printing you have to set that scale in Print Preview.
You will see you have to consider the intended scale when drawing. For example the windows details are much to delicate and dense for 1:100, even for 1:50, they get clogged from line thickness.
I haven't tuned everything perfectly, just to give you some clues. Work left for you.
By the way, LC 2.1.3 doesn't like changing hatchings'/fillings' attributes properties afterwards, they disappear then. Better delete and redo. Version 2.2.0 RC is much improved in this respect.
