Print problems usinf Windows 7 64 bit

I am having problems printing drawings using Windows 7 64 bit. Even though I draw on a page which is 8.5 x 11 the printer prints out the drawing on four pages. Does anyone have any ideas on a solution to this problem? Thanks!

Tools > drawing options > scale, may be playing a part in it.


File > print > 'sizing method' (bottom-left) > fitted to printer page will shrink drawings but may screw your scaling.

Thanks! That partially solved the problem. I am now getting a print out on one page but you are right, the scaling is way off. The margins on the page go from 0.5" to about 2". At least I can email drawings to customers that they can read.

I run V9 on two systems with one having a problem starting files from Explorer Windows 7 otherwise no problem.


I recall some time back having to play with the margins and setting them to .1 to overcome the printer imposed margins

I'm using WIndows XP and Office 2010.  6 months ago discarded printer HP all-in-one 1310 for a HP4480 printer.

 All is OK until I fire up my legal Autosketch9 and any printout  is halved in height. I know I can mess with stretching the entity, but I thought I'd see what happened when I opened a year old drawing file that successfully printed  on the old printer.  It too fouled up - must be the new printer that causing the error.  I then "repaired" Autosketch using control panel and my autosketch CD, but no improvement.  How does one configure the program for the printer?  Is a different printer driver needed?
