    I just received a PDF file and in the lower right corner is a scale in both inches and cm. They don't match my ruler. How do I scale this up or would it be better to buy a new ruler? :) John

    scaling

    Thanks Carl, I'm a little ahead of you, I am already re-working things in PSP 8
    Don't know yet if I'll have any luck but I'm gonna give it a go. John

    What paper size do you have selected on the printer, could the pdf be set for A4 paper? ie rest of world standard, rather than US letter?

    Paper size

    Tony, you are right on. One problem, my card stock is 8.5 X 11 and I am not getting all of the graphics. They cut off at the bottom of the page. Any suggestions? John

    I would try different settings on the printer options. You should be able to change this setting when you are ready to print. good luck.
