    plot scale-plotted paper scale

    Hallo guys!

    I had never such a problem with cad 2008.
    Simply put, i draw a rectangle 100x50 and set a plot scale eg. 1:1 and in the plotted paper it is smaller eg.91x45.
    The same happens in every plot scale i use.
    I have an A4 hp 4645 printer, but the same happens also in pdf export (freepdf).

    I never had this problem again!!!

    Why is that, and how can i fix it?

    Are you plotting from model space or a paper space layout?

    Hi freeriding,

    I just answered this over on cadtutor.

    I know you are plotting from modelspace but try selecting the 'Save changes to Layout' button.

    If this is not selected then modifications made in the plot dialogue itself can be ignored/reset when you actualy send the plot.
    (Yes, even when plotting from modelspace).
    Im intelligent enough to know that I dont know everything; but I'll tell you all about it anyway.
