Printing to scale

Post by davrail »

There are two parts to this question...
1. How do you specify the need to print ONLY the area delineated by the baseboard? Not the entire work space.
2. How do you get it to print to scale?

I am working on an iMac and print to A4 paper on a Brother Lazer.

Hi Dave,

At this point the entire document is printed, however there's an open to-do item to enable printing of just a section of the layout.
(..there's also an open feature request for commenting/voting at https://bit.ly/3i3La8d)

We're looking into addressing this in a future update!

In order to print to scale (1:1) you can select the 1:1 option as Zoom Factor in the RailModeller Pro Print Settings:

The "Image Export and Printing" section in the manual also provides additional information!

Cheers,
