- Please attach drawing file (DXF or DWG) if possible or send it by e-mail.
- Please check if creating a PDF with QCAD works as expected (File - PDF Export). Do NOT use the Mac OS X print dialog PDF export function for this.
- RC3 is a bug fix release for Windows only.

PDF export appears to work fine to A3 with the submitted file. The exported PDF is A3 and shows the whole drawing.

Printing to A3 cannot be tested here unfortunately.

Suggested workaround: export to PDF and print PDF with favorite PDF viewer.
