Sizing to printer page

Post by Harperdave » Tue Sep 04, 2018 5:33 pm

I know this is QCAD basic 101, but I am having fits finding an easy way to size a drawing that started from the ISO A 0 Landscape template, to print on a letter size printer. Is there a simple way to do this please?
WIN10 with QCAD 3.10.

Launch "Print Preview" and look in the Option bar for "Auto fit drawing to page(s)".

THANKS TO BOTH OF YOU! I knew there had to be a utility for that but I could not find it in the reference manual or on the tool bar. I will go through all of this. I suspect i will learn much, and be able to correct several things I am doing wrong, or just doing the hard way. Your help is much appreciated.
