Topic: Project Scale

Good Morning ! They are doing an automation project, but when printing on A4 sheet, I think it's getting all small. Would there be any way to scale the drawing at the time of printing?

Re: Project Scale

Hello,

can you send a screen in print preview dialog?

Re: Project Scale

The only way to change diagram scale is to change dimensions of folio in your diagram (reduce diagram columns, rows dimensions or decrease numbers of columns and rows) in folio properties before printing pages.

OK ! I will try this !

Re: Project Scale

Hi gleissoncg2,

in the print dialog, you have to make active the checkbox "Use the whole page".

Hello ! I managed to get the result I wanted by making some adjustments in the columns and lines and also decreasing the pxs, which for some reason were very high. I recorded a video to demonstrate if someone else had it too.

Re: Project Scale

Hi gleissoncg2,

I personnaly use:
columns = 8x148px
rows = 8x97px
it fits good on a printed A4 paper sheet or A4 pdf sheet.

Then, in the printing configuration, I use the following margins:
top:16mm
bottom: 8mm
right: 8mm
left: 8mm

Hummm ... I'll try...

Re: Project Scale

When using 50px of 70px per column or row, the middle of the row is nicely centered on the grid. I didn't find an optimal number of columns to fit nicely on a A4 paper. It would be nice to have an option to be able to fix the middle of columns always on the grid. To make this possible the first and last column might be adjusted separately, with fixing the grid on the middle of the first column with the standard column width. Only the first and last column won't be on the grid.
I would like some other options here as well, like setting the starting column number (e.g. to 0) or to make the columns increasing over the pages (1-st page column 0-9, 2-nd page column 10-19 etc.)
For now I use the next settings to come close to A4:

Cols   21 x 50px
Rows  10 x 70px

Re: Project Scale

When scaling the page so, that the symbols look a bit smaller when printed out on a A4, the dashed lines look almost like solid lines. Is there a way to reset the scale of dashed lines?

Re: Project Scale

Hi b.w.v.leeuwen,

no, there is no way to change the length of the patterns.
QET still uses the standards available from Qt.

Re: Project Scale

Hi b.w.v.leeuwen,

you could use type Custom dash line.
