woeful printer functions

Postby lowell@testimonial » Sun Jan 29, 2012 9:18 pm

is it safe to assume (hope?) that the printer functions in QCad Version 3.0 RC3 are a work in progress? On my Windows 7 (Home) 'puter, "Auto fit drawing to page" is a fatal mistake. My only way out is to quit/re-open the file. There is no "custom fit" of a sketch to the paper size - only the pre-ordained scale relationships.

Rather than quit/re-open file! ...in the scale option in "print preview" select scale 1:1, this will take your drawing back to your original size (common practice anyway to draft in 1:1 -then set your desired scale for printing).

True there is no "custom fit" option -you can add a feature/or bug request here:
