Scaling one axis of printer output

Postby slbarton » Thu Mar 11, 2010 8:03 pm

I am using QCAD version 2.0.5.0 Community Edition.

Is there a way to scale the length but not the width of my printed output? I am finding that the measured width of the printed output in either landscape or portrait are exact; however, the measured length of the printed output is slightly longer at approximately 1/32" over 6". My printer is a brother HL-2140 laser printer and there appears to be no scaling option in the printer software.

(I tried scaling at 1" = (6"/(6"+1/32")) or approx. 0.994818" and the printed length is exact; however, the printed width is then short by 1/32" over 6".)
